Today is a good example: We read a science lesson on compounds. We talked about, I gave tons of examples, we talked quite a bit about salt and water. Okay, lesson was over. We were ready to start our assignment. I quickly asked, "So, what does compound mean?" Hoping everyone would say, "it's when you combine two or more elements!" ...nope.... they just sat there, staring at me, as if I asked them a question in a foreign language. Then, we started the assignment, and OH BOY!!! Sob. I'm starting to think that fifth isn't for me. I need to go back to kinder.
