About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty-five 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 was a live guest on the Kelly Clarkson Show. I am highlighted in the seventh edition of Jim Trelease's million-copy bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital, and the Massachusetts State House in Boston.

    Not surprised by this!

  4. This is so true! I’m so glad to read the post and have the graphic. I just shared it with my nephew who is an expectant father!

    And reading is the most expanding, inspiring thing you can do.

  7. Such words of wisdom, Jennie. There is nothing as educational as reading.

    Very nice example of meaning of daily reading. I always had 20 minutes SSR time in my middle school language arts classes. Silent sustained reading was something from the 70’s (or earlier. . . ) and means much more today!! 🙂

    I’m so glad to know Jim Trelease included SSR time in Chapter Five. Hurray for Reading lessons from you, Jim and my college professor in the 70’s!! 🎉 📚

    Reading is so important, Jennie. These statistics are quite frightening but clearly show the importance of reading, and what a difference a little every day can make.

  11. Every little bit helps, right? Read on, Jennie. Hugs.

    I think reading is important but I often get teased for teaching my baby how to read.
