Welcome to Paula's Preschool and Kindergarten! My class blog is the place I share information about some of the fun learning activities we are doing at school. I hope to provide parents with insight into what we are doing, and why, and to share ideas with other early childhood educators. Please don't use the photos or text of this blog without permission, but please do use any ideas you find useful. Thank you for stopping by!

Awesome Songs and Rhymes Your Children Will Love

I've always sung with and to my kiddos.  Sweet songs, silly songs, classroom management songs, things we make up as we go - they're all part of the sound track of childhood.  Recently I've started recording short videos of me singing some of my favorites, and posting them to social media.  If you have a little one (or two or three or twelve), I hope you'll check them out!

This one is "Down by the Banks of the Hanky Panky," a fun knee bounce rhyme for babies and toddlers.

You might be a teacher if...

from Paula's Primary Classroom
I was walking my dogs this morning, and passed a pine tree where the ground was littered with tiny pinecones.  I caught myself wondering if there was a class supply of them, and were they intact, and wouldn't they be great for that one craft and....

There are 100 fantastic reasons to enter for this prize!

It's May, and if you're a teacher you are probably up to your ears in end of year craziness.  Testing, report cards, awards ceremonies, field days, more testing, preparing your room for the summer, parent meetings, staff meetings, and all the other things that come to a head as the school year revs up for the final few weeks.  You could use a break, some chocolate, more caffeine and a moment to breathe.  A $100 gift card wouldn't go amiss either, would it?


I've joined up with a fantastic group of educators again this month to give away exactly that: $100 to spend on TeachersPayTeachers, where you can find just about every teaching resource you could dream of.  Good luck everyone!
