Ms. Navarro has stopped by Pre-K 108 before, but is always rushing to other places to get work done. Today, her stay was extended since her kids would be dismissed by another teacher. Jessica conversed with L.C. as he constructed with playstix, checked out our new building toys, and interacted with some of our pre-kinder monsters. She asked one of our students, L.L. for a tour of the classroom, but was snubbed. I asked O.H. if she'd like to help Ms. Navarro, but she also silently declined.
Yikes! 0 for 2. Another rejection and Ms. Navarro may not want to visit our classroom anymore. So, I resorted to my ace in the hole, the child I can always rely on interacting positively and delightfully with any adults, L.Z. Although she has a great loving personality, I must say, she takes the award for most likely to be kidnapped since she's very trusting of everyone.
I remember vividly, the first day of school. While every other child clung on to their guardians and cried for their parents, L.Z. walked right through the door smiling, waving, and saying hello to Ms. Chin and me. I asked L.Z. if she'd give a tour to my friend Ms. Navarro, and she happily accepted. She grabbed Ms. Navarro's hand and led her on a great but limited tour of our class. L.Z.'s older sister, C.Z. was in Ms. Navarro's class last year. The tour came to a halt in dramatic play, as L.Z. showed our classroom tourist the different dramatic play clothes, specifically, the Hair Stylist. Ms. Navarro asked for a haircut. L.Z. went above and beyond, giving Ms. Navarro a haircut, wash, and grooming. Ms. Navarro was very pleased with L.Z.'s services paying L.Z. her standard price plus a 100% tip, totaling 6 whole dollars! Somehow I was suckered into paying all of it.
The day was ending. The chime rang, signally clean up time and closing time (not the Semisonic song). Ms. Navarro sadly departed and our kids got ready to go home. Thank you for visiting, Jessica! You're welcome back anytime!
