Preparing for the first day of preschool

This is just a quick post to wish those of you getting ready to go back to preschool a VERY blessed year!  It took me all day, but I am pretty much ready to go. I had a few things I still wanted to do but you know how that goes – it is a work in progress…

Tomorrow, I will share more about my completed classroom – but these are a few of the little things we have all set and ready to go…


I purchased simple blank books for our journals.  Mrs. Courtney added everyone’s name to a journal and they are all set to go…

Math Bags

For those of you who have been following my blog for some time, you probably know all about our math bags.  We will be doing math bags again and I will share more on them as we go along.  If you want to read up on the previous year of math bags, you can start by clicking here: Math Bags. Mrs. Courtney added each child’s name to a math bag and my job was to prepare the parent note to go home with the math bags.  Ummm, I will do that in the morning…

Story Telling Box

I also made myself  two little story telling boxes. Well, they could also be called treasure boxes but I am calling them my story telling boxes for now because I want to really focus this year on helping my students express their own ideas, thoughts, and stories.  I am hoping the story telling box will get us off to a good start…

Okay – like a said, this was a quick post to wish everyone well and share a short update!  Have a great year in preschool!

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
