Hello. I am interested in creating a airport in my dramatic play center in my preschool classroom. I noticed you some printables but they are included with lots of other dramatic play centers. Would you be able to just offer the airport dramatic play center so I could purchase it and download?

Hi, I just saw that you posted a picture from my blog on First Grade Faculty. Thanks for your interest in this post. I know Charity Preston is very particular about having pins go directly to the post. Here's the link to the post that the picture is from:
http://commoncoreconnectionusa.blogspot.com/2013/02/building-fact-families-awhile-back-i.html

If you want to edit your pin, you can just click on it and paste this into the address bar below the picture. Then, the pin would go directly to the post.

I just learned about this recently and am finding it very handy. Hope it's helpful.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at annegardner4@gmail.com.

Then I downloaded adobe reader and redownloaded it and it is still showing the black squares through all the Abc's. I was excited to print it on cardstock and practice Abc's with my girls.

Pam N. re: Parental Involvement (Homework) Calendar November for PK and Kindergarten
Hi, me again. I had asked another question on one of your other calendars...I think it may have been the September Calendar. But anyway, do you happen to have the October Parental Involvement Calendar? I saw all of the months except October. And, I see that these are in powerpoint format...are they editable? in case I want to add my own letters, or sight words at a particular time? Thanks.

The Fun Factory  (TpT Seller)
Hi! Thanks so much for your questions. We always explained the homework calendars during open house. Some teachers sent letters home, I did not because most of my parents came. I did not require any follow up with the calendars because I know "other" things happen during the week and sometimes there isn't enough time if the parents both work outside the home, or a one parent family. Although I do stress that they should be doing at least 3 of the 5 days worth of homework in a given week, just to get use to the idea of homework. I am trying to put the responsibility back on the kids and parents.

Yes I do have Oct. 2013 ready I just haven't loaded it yet and I have not revised Nov.- May to reflect the new school year, yet. They are not editable (they are a pain to type - the boxes are so small) but I send home additional things to practice as well, sight words would be one of those additions. Please let me know if there is anything else we can do for you.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

The Fun Factory is a team of two teachers with over 20 years classroom teaching experience in grades PreK through 4th grade. In addition, we have over 10 years experience as Early Childhood Specialists in the field of curriculum and professional development with a large urban school district which involved curriculum development and writing as well as district-wide teacher/administrator training. Presently, the Fun Factory teachers, Kathy and Susan, are independent consultants. Individually they have presented at local, regional, state and national conferences on such topics as Music and Movement, Thematic Planning and Teaching, Attention Deficit Disorder, Brain Based Instruction, Storytelling, Science and Math Concepts in Early Childhood, and Balanced Approach to Reading, to name just a few.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We believe in active learning which includes lots of music and movement and learning through play. We have fun while we accomplish our learning goals! Worksheets are not our friends!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Over the years, we both have had the privilege of many honors and awards. However, the most exciting has been the recent publication of my first book, Tunes for Teachers Teaching … Thematic Units, Thinking Skills, Time-on-Task and Transitions This is a life-time dream-come-true! It is a book that was written as I was teaching, inspired by those teaching around me and encouraged through teachers to pursue the trials and triumphs of looking for publishers. Thank you to you all. Look for it in our store. I hope you will find it useful.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BS Education Masters Degrees in Curriculum and Instruction, Teaching and Learning with emphasis in Early Childhood Reading Certifications include: •Early Childhood Education (PK-K) •Elementary Education •Special Education (PK-6) •Gifted and Talented (PK-12) •Certified Trainer-Assessor for Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale (ECERS) ESL

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Susan has a new granddaughter!
