To display the children's artwork, I use a clothesline wire attached to 3M hooks.  Then, the kids can add as many items as they want.  On this particular day, the children completed an AB patterned paper chain and painted hearts.
We have a busy schedule in our room.  The children are fascinated with the occurrences of the day.  To help the children learn our schedule, I created a picture schedule that can be altered to accommodate change.  In the morning, during circle time, I go over the schedule to alleviate questions later.  
Each center is labeled with a picture and a brightly colored sign.  Each tub is labeled with a picture of what items go into the tub.  This helps the children to find the items they need, but most importantly it helps immensely during clean-up time.  The children know exactly where items go!

For the past couple of weeks, I have been teaching about friendship and feelings to my preschool students.  There are many great resources for this topic.  In addition, it really lends itself to the spirit of Valentine's Day.  One resource that I came across while pinning, was a website that had storybooks online (even Arthur's Valentine).  The kiddos really enjoy listening to a story independently and this resource allows them to do just that!

The Beginning of the Beginning

I am embarking on the journey of teaching.  What a wonderful journey this is going be.  This blog was created to take account of the many exciting days I will have teaching young children.  I imagine that this will hold all of my favorite memories throughout my teaching career.  Let the wonderful memories commence!
