Yes you are totally right, I love the way they are. About the word yucky, oke then I thought it a negative word so that we can replace it like dirty or something else.

There is nothing wrong w/ the word yucky.

I LOVE 2 year olds. They are definitely tiring, but learning so much and so cute. ♥ Running inside isn't ok... we do 'walking feet' for inside, but yes... they make a bunch of messes. Some kids at this age LOVE to pick up.... but more love to 'dump out.' lol

Ya after reading Montessori book as well I get more understand them, they learn from their environment uncounsionly. so that as a teacher I need to give a chance for them to grow and direct them how to do things theirselves.

Ni, I have had my own children and they are well past this age. Even now at the age I am its still very hard to deal with this age group sometimes. But I love each as if he or she were my own.

But the thing is they are two years old and you can not expect them to clean up after themselves perfectly or even do it partially. You have to show them how to do things. THat is what we teachers are for. As for doing a worksheet....that is not what a two year old needs. THey need to have the chance to create that sheet for themselves with crayons, markers, paints, and other things. THey do not know how to read yet nor do they understand what is on that sheet. Also, when you do clean up after the meals, have them help, give them a paper towel and let them wipe the tables down, let them help sweep by holding a broom or the dust pan.

Yes i did the same thing as well, but sometimes being 2 years kids teacher seem really tiring, do you thing so? we have to do what they need to do, like clean up is not themselves doing it as they want but it's on our intention right? we have to take their hand and do the cleaning seem that all the thing we do it. furthermore in doing worksheet time I they need to hold the hand unless they will just scribble the paper and go.

I am also a teacher of similar age range and you need to set up play areas that keep them busy and offer them the chance to play outside for about an hour a day if not more so. You also need to keep their interest in things and to do that you need to find what it is this group really likes to do. I have a group that likes paints and glue. So we do more of that for arts and crafts. They also love cars and blocks. So we play with those alot. We have circle time where we read stories and sing songs before lunch arrives and then comes nap time. After nap we sometimes do art or play with balls or bubbles.

I am a teacher, There are so many apparatuses around the classroom and the kids are about 2 until 2 and half years and there are three teachers inside. there are too active sometimes making them to be nice to sit in meal time is so hard, they just want to explore and explore what they need to know.

are you the teacher, or a parent? If you are the teacher, the classroom runs by your rules, and you need to enforce that.

If you are a parent, and you think the teacher is too lenient, or letting the kids get away with doing nothing but playing, then I'd suggest a meeting with her.
