I taught full-day kindergarten for 14 years and have spent the last 2 years as a kindergarten and first grade strategist working all over my district. I am excited to say that this school year I will be back in my own kindergarten classroom!! While I loved working with kinder and first grade teachers and their students, I missed having a class of my own.
I graduated from Dallas Baptist University in 2008 with a masters in curriculum and instruction. I am currently working on my doctorate in early childhood studies with a minor in curriculum and instruction at the University of North Texas. I hope to one day teach at the university level. I love what I do and want to pass on all that I have learned over the years to fellow teachers and students!
We are learning about timelines in social studies. We read The Very Hungry Caterpillar and made a timeline of the caterpillar's metamorphosis into a butterfly to go with it. We also read the book Cookie's Week and made a timeline of Cookie's week long adventures. Tomorrow we are using the Grouchy Ladybug to make a timeline for what the ladybug does in a day's time. You could easily have your students make their own pictures for these lessons. I used pre-made clip art because I do not have a lot of time to teach social studies. You can get the timeline pictures and words here.
(sometimes getting to the Fed Ex office to make color copies is just too much trouble)
My students decided we needed to add another "Monday" to the end of our timeline because the last page of the book shows Cookie taking off for another adventure.
