I am Kathy Crane of Kindergarten Kiosk and I have been teaching young children for three decades. I believe that young children should be active participants in their own learning! Hands-on-games are the core of my “thematically designed” child-centered approach to teaching, and all of the Kindergarten Kiosk products reflect that approach. Two colleagues are contributors to the Kiosk team, Lyndsey Jarman and Kathleen Law. Each of us holds a M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction: Reading. Kathy and Kathleen have published 13 teacher resource books and are freelance authors. Additionally, Kathy has published 7 guided readers with Hameray Publishing. All of our products are innovative, tried and tested. Kindergarten Kiosk strives to be the go-to “Kiosk” for all materials Pre-K and K.
We believe that early learners should be active participants of their own learning! Hands-on-games are the core of our child-centered approach to teaching! Student scores will soar if children play while they learn. Also the children will love school and love learning! And yes, the teacher will also love teaching!
