After several days of working hard, I think the room looks much better. As the year progresses, the room gets to be a bit more cluttered. We have to spend time on rules and procedures before we overwhelm the 4 year olds with too many choices and "things". Our school uses the Success for All program developed by Johns Hopkins University. I use the part of the program called Curiosty Corner. There is a cat puppet in a basket on the corner of my desk. She is named Curiosity and introduces the topic each day. They love her! They listen best when she does the talking! I am also involved in the Texas Early Education Model program with the University of Texas. It is amazing how quickly those little minds can learn! I will be meeting many of my students at our Gator Gathering on Friday. Our school mascot is the Alligator! The Gator Gathering is a time for students to see their room, meet their teacher and bring their school supplies.
Ya'll Come Back Now Ya Hear!
