Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Tiny miracles

Overlooked by busy minds

Crushed by rushing feet

Eyes opening in wonder

Remember childhood’s 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.

    Oh yes – the eyes of a child often see the world in all its glory. We lose so much growing up.

  6. That idea–that we miss a lot rushing forward–I find truer each year. Lovely reminder.
