The classroom is almost prepared, we’ve almost got our plans for documentation, we’ve fully planned our first week of curriculum… All we need now is the kids! Next week I plan to start a “Notes from the Floor” feature on the blog. For now, just a few items you should read.
Especially this really, really good one from Teacher Tom, about teaching children to question authority by (in part) saying silly things. And then another post with excellent examples. I tell you, the man’s a genius. On my good days, my classroom is like his.
An anecdote, from NAEYC’s blog for families, about how the start of the school year is a learning time for children and teachers alike.
And a neato little art activity, and new way to use a light table, from Teach Preschool.
Have a good weekend!
