But of course, she knows better than you. It is not unlike parents who hate "new math" because they don't understand how to do it. It is not the way things "have always been done", so obviously it is not the best way.

Keep up your authentic learning, you are obviously having good results. Sadly, this grandmother will credit his good reading either to her way or the first grade teacher.

Our kindergarteners (most middle to upper class) are regressing because the teacher is not teaching and they have no pre-K foundation.

Thanks for the comments. I try to keep an open dialogue with parents and, especially in the beginning of the year, explain our approach to teaching pre-k. While she may still be resistant if I devote more time to informing families of our strategies, I think I can perhaps do more on an ongoing basis. She has not yet responded to the list of "ways we work on letters and letter sounds" I sent home. We shall see...

Just curious - what is the kindergarten teacher doing?

We should give children the courage and confidence, and help them to develop, as the Oxford University and Leo prexy Smith 1919 to British prime minister's letter writing: "open-minded, acute, love truth, can resist irrational belief, sophisticated, stale and sensationalistic".

I opine that to get the business loans from creditors you must present a firm motivation. However, one time I have received a secured loan, just because I wanted to buy a car.

buy essay papers

Usually some students do really know how to accomplish the custom essays. But when you’re not experienced papers writer, you would have to seek the good research paper writing service to buy your essays with the goal to show your writing ability.

custom research paper

All the time, different guys, which require the online essays, do not really know the proper way to find that. But that’s not very hard to buy custom essays from the professional term papers writing service. This is a natural action for most students.

About Me

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

By sharing my classroom and my thoughts, I hope to give you more insight into the benefits of high-quality pre-k and how we can all play a role in creating and improving these vital programs.
