Hi Sophia, just a note of encouragement: as someone whose job involves a lot of time spent reading education related blogs and news, you don't know how really refreshing it is to come across a blog like yours. I look forward to more!

Sophia Pappas

Thanks, Luke. I look forward to hearing more more about your own thoughts and experiences.

Judy Ramirez

You've demonstrated how classmates' names can become highly motivational LITERATURE!

If you'd like to create an entire phonemic awareness/spelling lesson using their names, I am happy to help.

Let me know,


Sophia Pappas

Thanks for the note, Judy. I would love to know more about your lesson.

We use the "Bingo" song with their names to teach each child how to spell their friends' names.

About Me

My name is Sophia Pappas, and I teach pre-kindergarten at an inner-city public school in New Jersey.

And I want to know what you think, too, so please don’t be shy about leaving comments and using this blog as an outlet for ideas, reflection, and debate.
