If you ask a Kindergarten student why they are in school, what do you suppose the answer would be? We can spend ton's of money and time pumping information into little minds...and we do....but if we don't teach THEM why, they won't get it. I'm not an educator as such, but what I've learned from life is this: Give me a reason to learn and I'll learn. Tell me that the more I learn the better I'll be, I'll get better.

What is the premis of Kindergarten? Information programming? social adjustment? Preparations for what's to come? At age 5 you, the educator, are given a clean slate upon which to write the childs future. What are you writing on the slate?
