I found you about 2 weeks ago and follow your fabulous blog--LOVE IT!

weety said...

I would love to see pictures of your classroom and management ideas/organizational type ideas. I think we all get lots and lots of ideas from just taking a peek at the classroom environment!

I also love all your thinking map ideas--we are a "thinking map" school, too, but I always have a hard time figuring out good ways to get it into K.

Heather said...

I would love to learn more about how you teach math - specifically money. I think money is tough. Some teachers have a math wall, some follow the book and supplement. I'd like to learn more about your math philosophy.

kathy said...

I am now officially a follower (Although I have neen checking your blog for a couple of months now already!). I especially love your thinking maps. My primary mentally disabled students are learning how to write sentences and need all the scaffolding that they can get! We just finished plants and are moving on to insects and then zoo animals for themes. I can't wait for you to post items for sale! I have been trying to make some of my own mapping materials using Boardmaker to fit our themes. What software do you use to create your materials?

I would love to know some of the activities that you use at the beginning of the year. I am finishing up my first year of teaching K and would also like some more writing ideas....how do you do writing lessons? I feel that I struggle the most with teaching writing in K! I want to do more!

I have a blog, but it's a family blog when I start a teacher blog then I will post things like that there. I love your maps and would love to see even more of those on here and ideas for writing because I don't think the Language Arts options that we have out there support our students enough.

I hope I win! :)
