How to get my Monday off to a great start? Leave a provocation out in the preschool playground for me to find when I arrive at work!
I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at work to find this little provocation left behind by someone who had visited our preschool playground over the weekend. I arrived on a Monday morning a couple of weeks ago to find this.
I always leave a little bark, leaves, driftwood and branches on the table over the weekend and then when we open up the shed and I add a few animals to make a little “mini habitat”. But this was not the way I left it before the weekend. Some little elves or someone had been at work here but I had no idea who it could be. Maybe it was some local children in the neighbourhood who came to play on the weekend. Right away I took some photos because I knew it may not stay this way for long.
Imagine my surprise when EV arrived at preschool and asked, “Did you see the surprise I left for you?” Apparently she and her sister had been playing there on Sunday evening and created the provocation. I showed her the photos I had just taken. I was absolutely delighted that she would do that! But then four year olds have such a way of wanting to do things for people and EV is all about making little surprises for her teachers.
What a great start to a Monday morning 🙂
Maybe it is time for Teacher Cindy to leave a little surprise…
