My new blog life

When I started on this educational journey in January, I also started on a journey of reading blogs.  I am now subscribed to (I think) 16 blogs all about teaching preschool and the ideas that they develop - or borrow - and how they worked in the classroom.  Working with 2- and 3-year-olds can be hard in that their developmental levels are so varied.  Books do not always provide the ideas that work, since they are focused on the text-book child that doesn't exist.  So you need to check some of these out.

I also need to say thanks to some of my new colleagues!  We are finishing our 2nd class on our way to receiving a masters in early childhood studies.  I an excited about continuing this journey with you!

Oh ... and then there is pinning.... but we won't go there.  So between my school work, teaching and lesson planning, being a mom and wife, I have found time to blog and pin.   Ahhh, the world of technology!


  1. Dear Amy,

    I hear ya about the new blog life! I am enjoying every moment of this part of learning. I liked the ability to share, post, receive feedback and learn from others. I must say it was a pleasure working with you this semester, and I really look forward reading your blog in the near future.

    All the best,

  2. Thank you Amy! I have also enjoyed this second course. Hope to see you in another, if not, I will be sure to check back!

  3. Thank you for sharing you newly found blog sites. They do offer wonderful information. I look forward to working with you in future classes as well. God bless your friends for the work they are doing in Malagasy.

  4. I love that picture of "Teaching 2 and 3 year olds. Everyday is unique with preschoolers!" The blogging world is new for me too but i must say I too am enjoying my blogging adventure. It has been nice reading your blogs. Thank you for sharing. Best of luck with the rest of your journey as a Walden student.

  5. Amy- I have enjoyed reading your posts each week. It has been an exciting eight weeks in this class. I look forward to working with you again in the future. I wish you the best of luck. I too was unfamiliar with blogging until the beginning of this program. I really enjoy doing it though. I guess it is similar to the days of writing in a diary.

  6. Thanks for your fun and innovative resources! I have enjoyed following your blog and discussion posts. I look forward to seeing you in other classes down the road :)
