    Carly teaches first grade, and asks, “Could anybody tell me whether it is just as easy to use a Macbook as a teacher (syncing with Smart board programs etc.), or whether it is best to use a different laptop?”

  • One of my friends from college is having observers come from Washington, D.C., to observe her Inquiry-based kindergarten classroom. I keep up with her blogs and have seen some wonderful things.

    Very interesting. I have noticed that my preschool students all have technology skills upon entering preschool, but when given a choice of learning centers, the majority only spend a little time on tablets and computers (10-15 minutes in a three hour period) and really go for the interaction with others. I have a couple of students who prefer…[Read more]

  • Here’s a wonderful, big book about celebrating ethnic diversity that my preschoolers enjoyed as I read aloud last week. I placed it in the reading center with multi-ethnic puppets to give students the opportunity to re-tell the story to others. What other books have you all found useful for teaching this…[Read more]

    Great for Early Education. It’s free. Only thing to plan for is to use it with a Spanish keyboard on a PC or use the international keyboard function on iPad or iPhone. In some of the exercises, it will count English to Spanish translation inaccurate other wise. (eg. La nina without the accent is incorrect.) In other exercises, it will give…[Read more]
