Kindergarten Memories


Let's take a trip down memory lane and revisit some "kindergarten memories". Robert Fulgham wrote: Most of what I really need to know about how to live, and what to do, and how to be, I learned in Kindergarten.

Lessons Learned

Share everything. Play fair. Don't hit people. Clean up your mess. Ask before taking. Say "Sorry, "Thank You" and "Please".

What are some other things you learned during those early years of school? What do you remember most? Was it learning the alphabet, playing with the toys, or watching those big 1st and 2nd graders rule the playground?

Share a few of the experiences that you remember about this special time in your life.
