I'd say set limits with your children first then let the fun and happy teacher inside of you play it's part in class, but if the kids don't listen then it's time to reactivate the limits and set an example to the other children in class.

 

Always use to time wisely, take time to relax, Kindergarten is a "one day at a time" job, never think about what kindergarten will be like tomorrow.. It'll also help if you have a hobby at work, like studyuing Chinese or something like that, kindergarten gives us a lot of free time, depending on where you work.

I would suggest being a pupil in your class yourself, first.

 

I almost ran out of breath reading that ^.

 

Also, how about some full-stops, capital letters, commas?

 

Fortunately, you will just be a foreign face for the kindergarten.

Nobody can answer to you 'how to make kids happy'. Come to the Kindergarten, and try it by yourself. You should have 'some talent', to 'make kids laugh as soon as they see me'! LOL

In one Kindergarten, Principal asked me to 'pls., come on time!'. I always came at least 10' earlier, butt.....as soon as angelkids saw me, they started a 'riot'. 

Most Kindergartens have their own teaching material. Look into that after your 'touch-down' in China, first. Then, add your own lessons to Kindergarten's curriculum.

Yo, Mr anon Kindergarden Teacher:

Howzabout a little tip: Get some training!

Second tip: If training is out of the question, put on a bright orange wig of curls, a clown nose, polka-dot shirt, baggy pants held up by green and pink suspenders, and oversized shoes with a whoopee cushion in the left shoe and a bicycle horn in the right shoe. Then dance as fast as your contract requires you to teach. Use a plush doll or hand puppet - preferably a frog - to be your straight man in class.

Third tip: Stop pestering this board with junk you can research on the Internet yourself. What the fuck? You want the board members to do your homework for you?

Finally, check out all those friggin' links sent by another board member to a previous post of yours. Yowza!

And good luck on day one with the kiddies! Be brave!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
