Kindness Doesn’t Have to Cost (re-posting)

This is so beautifully simple and powerful, and the core of what I teach young children. The first point is a smile. I know firsthand the power of a smile. It happened twenty years ago in my classroom and changed my teaching. Although my teaching is rich in curriculum and learning, the root of what I teach is kindness and character.

About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.
