This is a Tuesday "Slice of Life" for Two Writing Teachers. Check out their website for lots more reflections on teaching.
This is the time of year when prospective families often drop by the school to check it out, to see if this is the place that they want to send their preschooler.
What questions will they have?
Will they wonder about the curriculum?
The pattern of our day?
The types of activities we do?
What project are we working on?
Are they wondering about our academics?
Will they ask, where is the math? what about literacy?
Are we teaching children to write?
What are the learning standards for preschool?
One young couple dropped by today, getting ready to send their firstborn to preschool.
Is it a problem that my child takes a three-hour nap?
How will my child adjust to having so many classmates, when he is a quiet, introverted child?
I loved these questions!
These are parents who are thinking about their child,
and his developmental needs.
