Kids at my school, they call them friends. "Wait for friends!" "Say hi to friends!" Etc.
Kids like me. It's probably because I accept random hugs and trust falls. Also because I'm wide and pillowy (read "fat").
Anyway about some of the kids:
B: B is a cute little girl, one of triplets. She has a sister and a brother. She and her sister (in a different class) are often confused, but it's actually very easy to tell them apart, because ours is cuter. Like my senpai teacher says, she has grown a lot. Her personality is really showing itself in other ways (that is, not just throwing everything). She loves to imitate you. She's younger than the other kids, but not by much, so idk why she doesn't talk more. BUT, she does say "Uh-oh" and a D sound for "All done." She also does the signs for "all done" and "more" lately. She understands everything, she just can't really talk. She doesn't like to sit still, but she participates and stuff. Likes to scratch and if she can't scratch, she'll bite. And she has some episodes of Rag Doll Syndrome (i.e., when you refuse to walk).
R: R is my home girl. She's bad (ok, there's no such thing as a bad kid, but you know. She's contrary for no reason sometimes.) but she's very smart and vocal. She's so smart that they give her choices "You can put your shoes on, or you can have time away. It's your choice." Cutest thing ever too. She has some catch phrases like "Ohh man!" when she drops something, and "Come on!" when she wants you to play on the tiny slide with her.
J: J is such a sweet kid. Tall for his age. He used to be pretty sensitive, getting all sad and wanting a hug when a kid half his size gave him a push. But I haven't seen him do that lately. I think it's because he recognizes his height advantage over the other kids. When someone's getting to close or is suspected of plots to steal a toy, he'll kind of lean at them and scowl. Really. Just like...
"If looks could kill." I want to tell him, "No physical intimidation, J!" But he'd probably just repeat his name and point to himself gleefully. At least he knows his name, which is more than I can say for some others...
K&K: Twins in our class. One cried for a few days, and before they moved to our class I thought they were humorless scowlgirlies. But they're better now. The one who cried before talks a lot now. The other one doesn't talk as much, and doesn't even acknowledge you when you ask her a question (during lunchtime, when we ask if you want some oranges or which milk cup you would like.) But, the second one does have bursts of talking, usually starting when they find their family picture that day (which they do, every day) and she will sign "more". They also have "Yes" and "No" mixed up.
C: C. It's probably bad to say, but I don't like him as much. He has some super sensory needs. Like today for example, he shoved himself into our arms, asking for a squeeze. Sometimes he needs a compression vest, too. Loves to push stuff. Stands on his head for some reason. He was nice today, but idk. He doesn't really talk, just makes some word-like sounds when prompted. Sometimes he just lies on the floor when we are supposed to be doing something. Pick him up or tug his hand a little bit, and he might get up or he might scream and kick. He even bit me the other day, on my hip. I yelped in a very teacherly manner. How do you even bite someone on the hip? I don't even...
D: A morning kid so I don't really see her. She looks like Lafayette from True Blood, and likes to sing and dance. That is all.
C: C's twin sister. Totally different from her brother. She is a very pretty little girl. She seems smart and big-sister-like.
M: M, I'm pretty sure he's autistic, but he's 2, so who knows? He pretty much ignores everyone, and if you try to engage him he will just avoid you. So yesterday I was in his room for a pumpkin carving (we only had two friends that day... yup, Friends.) While everyone was doing pumpkin carving, M was playing with the stickies at the window, then he went to the book nook, where I
Anyway, I felt good being able to interact with him. He's a cute little boy, but usually he just runs around swinging his arms and squealing in his own little world. He's a cute little blond boy, but I promise I only call him Draco in my head (too much fan fiction.)
Room 6: I love pretty everyone in room 6. They are preschoolers. They love birds. They're curious. They're smart. Augh... 2 years change everything. Then again, kids grow pretty fast in 1 month, too. The teacher asked me to talk to one of the kids in Spanish to get him to describe stuff (according to his mom, he doesn't do it in Spanish either). It is so funny because he mixes Spanish and English! "Es la big one!" he said as he pointed to a picture of a book on the back of another book in the series. "I saw a fox!" "Where did you see it?" "In the clase de Miss E~~" This really tickles me. I wanna study more about kids with two L1s (I think this counts as two L1s, but idk, I think his Spanish is stronger or used more).
I wrote too much. But lastly, there are some kids who are just hilarious. By this I mean that they cuss. I overheard someone talking to a parent about a kid who uses really er... strong language (including the N word. It was very funny to hear the lady say "The N Word" over the phone XD). I would really like to witness that. Another kid says things as soon as I get on the bus. "What the hell?" he asks right away, with a kick in my direction. It sounds more like "Wut da hell?" but still. I just walk past him and ask another kid if he's ready for school.
I would like to end with a song.
