A Picture Says a Thousand Words

A child in my class is greeting George Washington.
Yes, a picture says a thousand words.


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.

    No words required. Love it!

  3. I love this! #1 Grandson was introduced to the musical Hamilton last year and his love for that period of our history has just exploded! He wants so badly to visit Boston, and many other places that became famous during our Revolutionary period. He stumps us and Big Baby Boy with facts all the time. Big Baby Boy has a major in American History too! My brain is trying to work out a way to get a summer trip in. He would love this image and statue.

  4. Innocence….is the way of life for children 💫

    That’s a touching photo. George would be pleased, but perhaps wondering what was going on in ‘his’ country.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. What a great photo! History comes alive!!

    Present can touch the past as it touches the present.

    Sweet! This reminds me of when I used to work retail.. the amount of kids that would stand next to a mannequin and take their hand ready to leave with them astounded me LOL
