Wow, I just completed my 21st year as an educator in kindergarten and first grade. I also worked for 2 years as an adjunct faculty member teaching reading foundations, just as inquisitive as kindergarten without the wiggles!
I totally believe in an integrated approach to teaching. Most of what I do in my classroom is theme and literature based with lots of art and hands on experiences.
