okay, I am a bit mortified! I have noticed the girls "chasing" the boys in our class. They always want to be by a certain boy. Today the "football" player and the "Cheerleader" came back to class holding hands! I simply said, let go of his hand and have a seat on the carpet". During carpet time I look over and there they are, holding hands again and looking at each other with puppy dog eyes! I again told them to let go of each others hands ( I stress keeping hands in lap during carpet time). I look again and there they are...like two love sick puppies...I had to ask the "football" player to move to the other side of the carpet! Is it just me or are kids, 4 years olds, acting older in some areas of life? I thought boys didn't like little girls and girls thought boys had cooties? Did I miss this lesson in my methods classes? What is the best way to deal with this situation with out making a big deal out of it? I don't want to embarrass the two but I don't want to see this behavior with such small children! Your advice is greatly appreciated!
