Why teach Pre-K?

Because, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phillipians 4:13

Because, I love it and am called to it!

For my children and my husband!

Because I am me!

Diving into new territory...Kindergarten!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well it is official I am moving up to Kindergarten! Now don't worry I will keep my blog name and TpT store the same, I will not ask you to follow me elsewhere. I am thankful for each of you and will continue to provide posts with resources for both Pre-K and Kindergarten. I am truly excited to have the chance to experience where my kiddos go after they leave me. I am curious about the dreaded "summer slide" and how far Kindergarten progresses them. I am also nervous, not in my abilities to teach and learn but in the unknown of where the curriculum goes and what the expectations are for these little darlings that were just my precious 4 year olds. I won't be getting the same students as last year so I won't have to worry about looking at them like they are still 4 but with a new set of kiddos I am interested to see the difference between those who attended Pre-k and those who have not been in school before. Which brings me to another subject...room change, oh the horror of changing from a nice room with lots of storage and windows to a tiny, windowless room with no storage. Have any of you been in this situation before? How was it going up a year? Were you surprised by anything? I would love to hear your thoughts. I have already completely changed my theme from a jungle to The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I am dying to get into my room and start decorating so I can show you all of the cute stuff I made for my theme, but that will have to wait till August 6th. I hope you are all having a wonderful summer! Till next time, Christine
