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.
A teammate just shared the book Grumpy Bunny's Hat with me. Its a super cute book about a little bunny who doesn't want to give up her winter hat. It's a great spring board for talking about spring, seasons, and growing things. We used the book to create a circle map about spring and a hat glyph. The original idea for this hat glyph came from Shari Sloane. My teammate purchased the book through a Scholastic book order.
