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.
Today we read The Thankful Book by Todd Parr. Then we made a list of the things we were thankful for. When we first started to make the list I felt like Mr. Scary in Junie B. First Grader Turkeys We Have Loved and Eaten (and Other Thankful Stuff). Our list was not quite what I was going for, but then I went with Mr. Scary philosophy and decided that at least these were the things my little ones were thankful for.
