Smorgasbord Posts from Your Archives – #PreSchool – From Little House on the Prairie, to Geography, to Maps, to Mount Rushmore, to History… And More by Jennie Fitzkee

Thank you for sharing one of my favorite blog posts, Sally. Reading aloud one of the best classic children’s books is exciting. When a book makes children question, and takes them to other journeys of learning, it is in a class my itself. “Little House on the Prairie” is that book. Read what happens. It was a retelling that took us across rivers and states, and even to Mount Rushmore. It is exciting!

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.

      Thank you, John. This was (and is) one of my favorite posts. It makes my heart race and makes me excited to go to school everyday. I learned the hard way that deleting photos from my media library meant they were also deleted from posts. I quickly added the missing photo at the end, and Sally was able to refresh the post. She is an angel. Of course you already know that. 🙂

      • Yes I do. You know you can size your photo’s so that thery take little memory. This is especially important with j-peg photos from the phone. If you are interested I can tell you how.

        But, will the photo size then change in the posts they’re in? I will let you know, John. Thank you for the offer. I wish WP had a storage size upgrade.

      • No but going forward you will have enough memory so you don’t have to worry. For example the usual phobe photo is around 2GB of memory for a 600 X 600 (which I use on my posts). The conversion brings it down to less than 100kb which means you could post 20 photos in place of the one unsized. The appearence of the photo is unchanged. Let me know.

    Indeed, dearJennie, reading is so important and it starts by reading for children. We still like getting a story read for us. We always listen to audio-books in our car.
    Thanks for sharing
