“All I Really Need To Know I learned In Kindergarten”

BY Robert Fulghum

Share everything.
Play fair.
Don’t hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody.
Wash you hands before you eat.
Flush.
Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life-learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
Take a nap every afternoon.
When you go out into the world, watch out for Traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup–they all die. So do we.
And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned—the biggest word of all-
LOOK.

  1. War cookies and cold milk are good for you.

    Strange. I never learned about “war cookies” in kindergarten.

  2. Lovely! And if I might add,

    Find the magick in everything!

  3. Tracy, I just wanted to comment that I teach your son. I have to share with you that I thoroughly enjoy his positive attitude (always a cheery hello) and his thirst for knowledge. He has a mature sense of curiosity that will always lead him to learn new things and to better himself through reading and learning. He is a great kid. Happy holidays to you and yours! 😉

    Justin is an amazing kid and I’m not just saying that because he’s mine! He has had to overcome some difficult situations in his short life and we are so proud of how well he has adjusted and matured as a result of it. He is ALWAYS on a quest to learn something new and to share that knowledge with us in the form of lengthy and lively discussions on interesting and at times, controversial topics.

    Thank you so much for your lovely comment!

    Brightest Blessings to you and yours!

    Tracy

  5. Tracy,
    The pleasure is all mine. I mean that sincerely. I hope he enjoys his years at our middle school.
