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.
So simple. 🌻
And so powerful. 🙂
Very true, Jennie. And easy to do if you think first.
Best wishes, Pete.
Exactly! Best to you, Pete.
Great reminder! ❤
Short and sweet.
The ultimate truth!
As simple as it sounds, it’s a hard lesson to learn.
Yes, it is a hard lesson to learn. Simple isn’t always easy, even if it’s part of your upbringing.
so very important
Lovely choice to share, Jennie. Hugs on the wing!
Hugs to you, Teagan! 💕
The world needs to hear this.
Thats a wonderful advice too, Jennie! Thank you, and have a beautiful week! I hope the snow is away, and you are able to enjoy Spring. Michael
Thank you, Michael. Those two simple words are very powerful, aren’t they? Have a beautiful week. Spring is arriving!
Indeed, Jennie! We must never forget! Thank you, and congrats! Here winter is coming back. We are with dayover temperatures around -2 / 3 degrees, and clouds like potato soup. Lol
That is our fate, here at the former “Iron Curtain”.
I never think of you being at the former iron curtain. I can see where your winter-like weather brings that to mind. And yes, never forget!
So true and funny enough it was a conversation I had with my son just last week…Dad’s and teenagers…I do think it comes with age and experience as to how we respond and that’s how our conversation went…A timely reminder, Jennie 🙂 x
Well said! Best to you, Carol.
That is all it takes Jennie… To BE KIND… ❤
Very true, this is a lovely value to hold and teach others.
Yes, it is.
But sometimes it is VERY DIFFICULT to do this…
