As part of my memoir writing I have written about each grade level; filling in as many memories as I can for each one.
Kindergarten was at this school, Morrison Grade School. That classroom was on the opposite side from this view. It was a very large room with windows like these on two sides. Underneath were shelves for games, books and other supplies. We each had a towel we'd lie on for nap time. I can still remember the feel of the darkened room and the cool floor. All the children spread around the room, some asleep, some just fiddling with their hands or looking around quietly.
Our teacher was Miss or Mrs. Williams. She was an older woman who played the piano. These were my classmates. I'm in the middle of the back row.
We did crafts and learned songs including "This Old Man" which is still one of my favorite children's songs.
Did you go to kindergarten? Do you remember what your room looked like or what you enjoyed doing?
