What's Different?

Hi Everyone,
On Saturday I coloured my hair. I have gone from bottle blond to brunette.
It will be very interesting to see the reactions of the children tomorrow.

My class has difficulty coping with change. Last time I had such a radical change I had five very interesting responses.
One child whispered, 'What did you do to your head?'
Another didn't say anything until the end of the day and then said, 'Thanks for looking after us today Sue. When is Sue coming back?'
Upon reflection, the most honest of the bunch said, 'You changed your hair. It looks yucky'. When I look back at the photo's I think he was right!
One child cracked up laughing every time she looked at me and another wouldn't look at me at all!
So parents and friends I will let you know what happens tomorrow.
We are going to play the 'What's Different Game' this week during 'circle time'.
Would you like to play too?

  2. Hi Sue,
    How did the kids react to your new hair color?

  3. Hi Mary Ellen,
    We had a good laugh! None of the children noticed that it was a different colour. Even when someone said, 'Do you notice something different about Sue?'
    The funny thing was that Marg had a hair cut over the weekend and they all noticed that.
    I think they love me for who I am not how I look!
