March is going out like a lion, not a lamb.
Here’s how to keep smiling and stay warm
on the playground at school:
Thank goodness for my Olaf hat!
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.
Good old Olaf!
perfect for the crazy ‘spring’ weather!
Yes! Of course the children loved seeing me in the hat.
That hat is a classic. Nice and warm I’ll bet.
The best part is how much the children love seeing me wear it. 🙂
I’m sure that’s the case. 😁
Yes, indeed. 😀
Very cool hat! Perhaps I should break out my sock monkey hat.
Oh, I would love to see that!
😀 I’ll see about posting a photo of it at some point.
Mine’s a straw one to keep out the sun…Love yours to keep in the warmth 🙂 x
Thanks, Carol! The children really love it. I should be better about wearing a hat in the sun.
Aw! Cute hat, Jennie!
Thanks, Ritu. The children love it!
I don’t think it is the hat Jennie. I think it is the person under it დდდ
I love your Olaf hat! Perfect for keeping warm.
Thanks, Darlene. And perfect for making children smile.

Plus a little fire
Lots of smiles!
Definitely, especially from the children.
Once again I was left fumbling to put my windbreaker hood over my tassel topped winter hat. I think of Frost once again with his understanding of New England weather.
I know what you mean! New England weather in March has a little of everything. Thank goodness the Olaf hat was both warm and fun for the children.
stay warm out there. Here in PA we were having temps in the teens the last few days. It is nice to see the 30s again. Now if we could just move into real spring temps and stay there I’ll be happy
That’s March, for sure. The children loved seeing me in the hat, and that was the best!
Olaf was our grandson’s favourite character when he was younger. He had an Olaf cake for his 5th birthday. It has turned cold and rainy here too, and feels as if winter has returned. They say we might have snow on Friday! 😦
Best wishes, Pete.
With Olaf being your grandson’s favorite character when he was younger, you can see why my hat was a big hit with the children at school. An Olaf cake for his birthday must have been a dream come true. Snow in March is not uncommon in New England. Depressing, but not uncommon. I do hope your snow is only flurries. Best to you, Pete.
You look adorable, Jennie.
Thanks, Robbie. The children loved it!
LOL! That’s so fun! I bet it’s a big hit on the playground. 😀
It was so much fun! It was a big hit. I can relate to Olaf. 🙂
Wonderful. It suits you!
Could you drop me an email @ lwashin301(at)comcast(dot_(net)? I thought I had your email, but it turns out I don’t.
Never mind! Turns out I do!
Thanks so much, it just came in!!
Winter does seem to want to see us wearing hats a few more days.
At least I get to wear a fun hat. 🙂
I’m sure your children love that hat as much as you do!
Even more so!
hehe Charlotte would love this hat!
Yes, she would!
