Fragment of the Day- Harry Potter

May the words I say to children, and the words I write to others leave behind a little magic.

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.

  1. Let’s hear it for all those pesky vocab lists! For a few summers, Ma would buy us each(my younger brother and myself) a vocab book to improve our vocabulary one day at a time…that quickly morphed into one week at a time and of course by the end of the summer those paperbacks were tossed aside in favor of other paperbacks. The one word I remember really ‘getting into’ was: pugnacious. HA!

    Great quote. I know that’s not exactly what you meant by passing on this quote, but that’s the first thing that popped into my head –

  2. Mere words have often changed the world view, for good or ill, and that is what makes them so magical. Great post, Jennie! 🙂 Karen

    Nice re-blog, Jennie. I have never read any Harry Potter, but I know that it encouraged so many people to read again. So it’s a great thing in that respect.
    Pugnacious is a great word. It is also of the origin of the nickname for a professional boxer, a ‘Pug’.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      I did not know the origin of the word. Thanks! Harry Potter is excellent. That quote, how words can become magic, certainly resonates with me. Glad you enjoyed it, too.

  4. Love this, Jennie! ❤ Completely sounds like you. Harry Potter is a mystical adventure, I remember reading it and feeling like I was in a world of friendship and possibilities. You are a sweetheart. Blessings and happy weekend, Debbie 🙂
