Happy National Read a Book Day!

Today I begin the wonderful journey of reading aloud “Charlotte’s Web” to my class. These quotations bring to life the passion and importance and learning that happens when reading books.

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.

    Jennie, BTW, I know I’ve mentioned my favorite teacher of all time who is still teaching at 90 years young, Here is an old link where you can see David and his late wife, Lois, or you can meet Zeus and Athena… https://youtu.be/L-waTFdVsA4
