Rhonda at Pollyanna’s Path nominated me for a Liebster Award (= favorite” or “adored” one in German). I’m flattergasted (sometimes only a made-up word will do). Rhonda’s site is pretty adorable too, btw.

Rules: I’m required to Thank the nominator (gladly), answer the Questions (below), and Nominate others (belower).

The Questions

1. If you could be any animal on earth, what would it be and why?

Duh, an otter. Why? Well, they play constantly, they’re hyper-active, and they love to, ahem, make love. Also, otter’s are my wife’s favorite creatures. So, yeah.

2. If you had to write the soundtrack of your life,what would be the first three songs?

My own. I started writing songs when I was 13, so they form a sort soundtrack for my life. The first, “Sweet Marie,” had a melody stolen from an old minuet. The lyrics: “We never speak of Sweet Marie, we…

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.

    Good to see you nominated, Jennie. I don’t do these awards as a rule, (though I always answer the questions) but it is a great way to share the love of blogging.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      If you could only see my fumbling fingers tonight. I tried to comment and explain about the blogger. I think I’m going to edit the post right now to do that. Like you, I am flattered and don’t typically participate. But this blogger is terrific, one of my favorites. So, I am trying to do this… I really hate technology. And don’t tell me you understand, because you are amazing at what you post. 🙂 My best to you, Pete.

      Thank you, Diana. He has a terrific blog. One day I will figure out how to do a link so I can pay it forward. Give me 500 children and zero technology! 🙂

        Jennie, to do a link when you’re creating a post: a) copy the URL (web address) for the website of page you want to link people to, b) highlight the word or words in your post that you want the link connected to, then c) go up to the symbol of chain link in the pull-down menu (left of the quote marks), select it, paste the URL there and click Add Link. The linked word/s on your post will be underlined and in color (usually red). Voila!

        I know, I know… I passed high school Chemistry, but this is a bit more challenging. But, I love a challenge and I can do this. I’ll work on it. 🙂
