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.
I saw this rhyming Bridge Map idea on Melissa's blog the other day and had to do it with my class. We read the book I Ain't Gonna Paint No More! Then we charted all of the rhyming pairs we could think of and made a Bridge Map to show them.
