Shhhhh!

I'm getting laryngitis again. This will be the second time this year. I seem to get it at least once a year while teaching. You've gotta love this though....I went to Wikipedia to see what I could learn about it, and why I seem to get it so often. On their advice section, one of the recommendations is:
Avoid speaking when possible. Speak softly, but do not whisper.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Tell that to my 21 kindergartners.

But isn't that what we are supposed to do? Talk softly to them? I am really one to talk, or yell rather.

Feel better.

Hehe, you're right, but when they're all involved in a project, or playtime, a soft voice doesn't cut it for getting attention! I generally have a soft low key voice in the first place, so losing it makes it nearly impossible for them to realize I'm saying something to them when they're involved!

I'm seriously thinking of asking my classroom aide to read them their stories tomorrow.

Oooh, I hope you do! The best way to recover is to rest.
