Slice of Life 2020 – Day

Today’s inspiration came from Margaret Simon, author of the book, Bayou Song: Creative Explorations of the South Louisiana Landscape (University of Louisiana at Lafayette, 2018) recommended by The  Two Writing Teachers 13th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge (Day 23). The format of the poem, Peep Eye, offers a challenge for playing with words in a creative way.

The Curious Kindergarten

Welcome to The Curious Kindergarten, a blog about the discoveries my students and I make in our full-day kindergarten! A bit about me: I have been teaching Kindergarten for several years and have recently started implementing some philosophies from Reggio Emilia into my classroom. Our learning journey is a work in progress, and I hope visitors view it as just that: an opportunity to reflect and grow each day. Thanks for stopping by!
