Kids celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week by schooling KENS 5

"Ms. Winston is so nice and 'kindful,'" said Braydon Michael Jones, 5.

SAN ANTONIO — National Teacher Day was on May 7, which was right at open of Teacher Appreciation Week (May 6-10). The young students of IDEA Ingram Hills celebrated by schooling KENS 5 on the wonderful lessons they’ve been learning from their favorite teachers. KENS 5 pop-quizzed a handful of preschool students between the ages of four and five asking them about their favorite teachers and what they’ve learned from them. Their responses were priceless.

KENS 5: What are you learning from your teachers?

Ryan, 4: “Counting! 1,2,3,4,5,6,7…”

Without instruction, Ryan proceeded all the way to 34 where he decided it was the best number to stop on. He exhaled and requested the next question.

Dior, 5: “I like learning math. [My teacher] puts math in a sentence, and we have to try to figure it out on our own.”

Matthew, 4: "My favorite things to learn are numbers and colors...red, blue, pink, yellow..."

KENS 5: If you were the teacher and your teachers were your students, what would you teach them?

Braydon, 5: “I’d teach them karate so they can defend themselves like Spider-man.”

Laura, 4: “How to count.”

Ezra, 5: [To floss], you have to do four [movements] on this side and four on the other side.

Christian, Ezra, and Laura demonstrated their dance moves and four-year-old Matthew let KENS 5 in on a little classroom secret. “Ms. Winston does flips and dances,” he said. “She does backflips and front flips.”
