Your website is really great. I am a stay at home mom with a 4 year old who is in preschool and a fourth grader. I am very active in my daughter's school and have helped the kindergarten teacher there for 3 years now as a volunteer. This year she is le ting me prepare lessons and units and actually teach them. We are currently doing a Thanksgiving unit that I prepared and the children are really excited about the activities they are doing. I am a certified teacher but jobs in this area of Pennsylvania re tough to get so for the time being I am having fun helping in this kindergarten class and the teacher really appreciates my effort. Once both of my kids are in school full-time I may sign up to sub although I would much rather have my own class.

Congratulations!:o) Mrs. Griffin, you've done a very good and organized job. Besides being a kindergarten teacher I'm also an English teacher here in my town. And this home page is great for me. I can make some researches and get some ideas to my classes, get some info about books and about American traditions and culture, and of course, follow the way you give some activities. Here in my town it's difficult to find good English books and other materials which could help me in my classes. So I was blessed when I've found your page because I believe nothing is by chance. Keep the good work and that God bless you and your family! Thank you very much, Maria Luiza =^. .^=

Wow - I've been in preschool for 15 years and just this year got my dream job (at 49!), teaching kindergarten. My two fellow teachers and I are getting together this summer to do some planning. Unfortunately, we are only half day. We've been to several nservices on learning centers and tried having 10 centers the children visit on their own all week and check in with the teacher after each activity. Each center is labeled (color, shape, letter, word) and after completion, it is marked off their "ticket . Have you tried anything like this??? We only did it the last two months. We are also getting heavier into reading and writing and I enjoyed all of your information and know I will use alot of it. It is wonderful that you are willing to share AND have the time to make a web site! Question - do you do any other centers besides the early AM one where children chose 1 a day? Also does MTW mean you only do that activity Mon, Tue and Wed? How do you display all the letter charts? Thanks so much. Renata

Dear Mrs. Griffin, I've been enjoying exploring your web site for days now and I wondered if you would mind taking a few minutes out of your busy day to answer a few questions. I am a 44 year old woman who has been a housewife for the last 20 years. I have just gone back o college and I'm thinking of becoming a kindergarten teacher, but I have a lot of questions/doubts. What is the hardest part of being a K teacher? the most rewarding? Is it harder than you thought it would be? Do you think any school would even hire a 50 year old straight out of college, or am I just kidding myself? I love children and I love children's literature, but I don't want to commit myself to working for a degree that I won't be able to use. I hope you don't mind me asking these questions. Thank you.

In fact, I have started my master's degree and your ideas have led me to my research. I started using poetry in my cla sroom. I first got the idea of poetry from a workshop I attended last summer but when I saw how it's incorporated in your classroom, I wanted to do more and know more about how it helps the students. I would love to hear back from you about how you feel poetry enhances the education in your classroom. Thanks for the wonderful ideas!

Amy, thank you for your wed site. This is my first year teaching only k in the past I have taught k-l split I enjoyed this but teaching only k is great. I love all of your units. Please tell me how you find the time to prepare for these lessons. I hav 3 children under the age of 6. My husband is great with the children, but I don't like the idea of bringing my work home with me. I've tried this before and I don't really get any done anyway. Are there any tips you can give me to help me out with thi . I have parents that are willing to help and my assistant is a wonderful help, but she drives a bus. Therefore, it is hard for her to help me in the afternoons. I am excited about being able to teach only kindergarten and I want to get started on some of your units. Thanks again for you site!

I have really enjoyed your website. It has been very informative. I attend Appalachian State and I am majoring in Elementary Education. I want to teach Kindergarten. During my senior year of high school I had an independent study class and I worked in a k ndergarten class for an hour and a half a day. I loved it and I can't wait to get out of school and start teaching. If you have the chance any information you could E-Mail me would be greatly appreciated. I am sure by looking at this webpage that you are wonderful teacher. Sincerely, Laura Caudill

Hi, I really enjoyed your web site. I learned a lot and got a lot of new ideas. It amazes me that all this information is out there for me to use. I only began exploring the internet this summer. I am writing to thank you for all the work you have put in t make this information available for me. I am interested in creating a website but I am uncertain where to begin. Can you give me any direction? Also I would love to have my class participate in the post card exchange but I do not have Email at my school, I only have it in my home. Can we still tap into this idea and if so what do I need to do to get involved? Thanks again for all the hard work you did to make this website available for me. Keep up your work and have a fun filled teaching year! Regina

I have enjoyed seeing your web page very much and feel it is attractive, colorful, practical, informational, and provides a valuable link. I look forward to designing one myself and I am inspired by what you have done. I wish we could share everything we all do with everybody and this is certainly one vehicle to do it. I always have something to learn and I love to share. My greatest pain is preparing to be observed. I may be a so called by some "pro" but I always get anxious. We are observed and evaluated formally two times a year + 24/7 in everything because our district has "merit" pay. I love what I do and I give it all my best. I hink we should all share award winning lessons and support each other. Thanks for sharing and for reading this. My best to you.

What a great web site! You have inspired me. Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas. I have bookmarked your site and plan on visiting often. I was wondering what your approach is to teaching the alphabet... do you use Letter of the Week or somethi g else? Our district is also in the process of buying a new Reading series and would appreciate any suggestions from fellow teachers. Please e-mail me with comments or suggestions. Thanks!

I love your website! I work for The Psychological Corporation and found your website while looking for School Psychologists, Teachers, Counselors, etc. that might be interested in receiving information about research studies coming up this fall. Do you know anyone or would you be interested in participa ing as an examiner. For instance, we just completed a study for the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test - Second Ed, that will help counselors, etc. in determining whether a student may have a learning disability. If you are interested you may email me at peggy castro@hbtpc.com or call 1-800-233-5686 and ask for me. I can also mail you more information. I am NOT attempting to sell you anything! You can check out our company website if you want background information. We are a division of Harcourt Brace and help in the development stage of testing instruments. We pay both the examiner and student for participating and also can arrange for the facility or school to receive payment. Let me know if you are interested. Happy Fourth of July!!

I love your website. I wish I knew how to do one. How did you learn how? You (or anyone else that could give me some step by step instructions) can email me at the above address. I know NOTHING about computers other than how to get to teachers.net., s I would need lots of help. I love to see what other Kdg. teachers are doing in their classes.
