Monday Musings …28th February 2022…

Carol’s blog is always delightful, most interesting, and the best potpourri of everything . Really! Today she includes my post about Norway and the Olympics, and John Rieber’s posts about avocados and Zoodle Pasta. Also, did you know that putting out a candle fire with water is a no-no? Read on!

Retired? No one told me!

Norway dominated the winter Olympics.  Yet, the story behind how their athletes got there is fascinating.  Is it rooted in childhood?  You bet!…

I found this really fascinating about children’s early years and indeed it seems other Nordic countries like Denmark follow similar practises…indeed our very own Kate Duchess of Cambridge very recently visited Denmark… Kate’s first stop was to the University of Copenhagen to learn from world-leading researchers running the Copenhagen Infant Mental Health Project (CIMHP), which aims to promote the mental well-being of and relationships between infants and their parents…it seems other countries could learn a lot about children’s early years from both these countries…Please head over to Jennie Fitzkee’s blog to learn more…

Just when you thought there was nothing else you could do with avocado…The Japanese had other ideas… John Rieber was the first to report it here…Head over it looks so…

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.
