Just because it’s snowing outside doesn’t mean you can’t get a head start on your garden for next year. Countertop greenhouses are one of my favorite projects for Spring Break when the kids are out of school.     They love to help with the planting and it’s a fun activity to do

What my body does for me.  What I love about my body.  What's unique about me.  What I can do to help it stay strong and healthy.  Conversation starters to help children when the urge to compare starts. When they see their bodies with new awareness or forget to care for the gift of the physical self. Coming from a place of gratitude and awareness allows for an open dialogue based on respect, ownership and love. http://www.plantlovegrow.com/self-esteem.html

I'm totally going to do this when school starts! I love this idea! Kiddos pick the number of servings shown on the front from each bin. Holly will say I ruined it once I "whole grain it up", but so much more fun than making sandwiches every day!  Bin 1 - popcorn or veggie straws (I'll mix it up with what they call "junk food") Bin 2 - goldfish, rice and ritz crackers (again, I'll mix them up but they don't have to have the same thing everyday) Bin 3 - fruit to go and fruit & veggie source…

Parents of my students often ask me how they can start speaking Spanish with their children at home. Most of them have studied Spanish at some point and are comfortable reading and pronouncing the language, but do not have enough fluency or vocabulary to use it naturally. I encourage them to do the take-home activities I provide, to read picture books, listen to music and sing with their children. I also provide them with common Spanish phrases that they can use in everyday situations with…

When I was a little girl I dreamed of having my own magazine. I even used to type out my own little stories on my old-school typewriter with a view to piecing them together one day. However soon I was at uni and suddenly I was a lawyer. My heart got buried by sensibility as the 'practicalities of life' ensured I pursued a stable professional career. But I knew. I knew from the very beginning that this was not my calling. And finally after years of feeling like a round peg in a square hole I…

I do not believe this list to be exhaustive. It’s just what I see as top priorities to wrap your mind around when you’re staring down a “school starts” date on the calendar. I like sharing about how I think on this blog. I hope you find these tips helpful if you’re a new to teaching or just new to kindergarten.
