I taught kindergarten for 16 years and was a district k-1 strategist for 2. I have a masters degree in curriculum and instruction from Dallas Baptist and a doctorate in early childhood studies with a minor in curriculum and instruction from the University of North Texas. I am currently working for Dallas ISD as a prek instructional specialist.
Last week we added the strategy "recognize 2 words that rhyme" to our CAFE menu. We also worked on retelling stories and drawing ourselves. We used the book Silly Sally to work on all of these concepts.
