  2. Joy Lindgren says

    Hi :-) I am doing the book study I found on pre-k pages. Is this blog apart of pre-k pages? If so, where does the blog begin? Thanks!

    • says

      Hi Joy, No this blog is not part of Pre-K Pages. Vanessa Levin owns Pre-K Pages and I own PreKinders. We just work together with other blogs like Teach Preschool, Fun a Day, and Kathy Griffin to bring you this book study. Just follow this guide for all the links to each blog post.

    Thank you for the insight. This issue has always been a challenging one for me. I can’t wait for the next post.

    Great topics! I’m going to compile all the information so that I can refer back to them during the school year!

    From one Ga teacher to another, I look forward to all of your postings. I am a new headstart teacher, after teaching in pre-k thru 5 for 13 years. I am involved with a behavior class through our local RESA and am looking forward to participating in this one, also.
    Thank you so much for having the energy after a day with your little ones to share with us big ones!!

    Learning best what we need to know is sometimes a process we have to generate. Look forward to it! Thanks for the input.

    We use a set of rules in the classroom that the children learn and helps keep them in a respectful environment that is safe and loving. We also use a Kindness Jar that encourages children to share and learn how to work as a team.

    this is really neat. I have not really looked at the blogs yet but want to learn as much as I can about these topics.

    This is a very timely resource for me. I’ve been a Pre-K teacher for over 30 years with a BA degree in Child Development. Last school year, there was a child in my classroom with challenging behaviors and I tried many ideas from my “tool box” to manage his behavior. For the first time teaching, I had to ask his family to withdraw from our school because I was afraid for the safety of the other children. I feel like I failed as a teacher and ultimately, he had the control to change his behavior, not me.

    I love the book study! I have compiled some wonderful reference material for the future. Can’t wait to put it into action. Thank you for putting it all together. Please let me know where I can get the certificate. Thanks!!
