O.K. here goes my first official ‘teacher’ post.

So... what could be better than a smiley sticker on your paper?
I say, NOTHING could be better if you are a kindergartner!

While blog stalking today I came upon Ms. Schatz's blog, How About Them Apples http://schatzskindergarten.blogspot.com/, which by the way, your title is so clever. This then lead me to Mrs. Shelton's blog, Kindergarten Korner  http://kentuckykindergartenkorner.blogspot.com/.
There I found this awesome idea she calls, Did It Dots. Mrs. Shelton uses smiley stickers to reinforce following 5 writing rules. Check it out you will be glad you did.

 I am certain many of you are familiar with this book.  It has become along with my many kinder kats the inspiration for my blogspot.  I will, no doubt, refer to it often in my blog journey.  I received this book as a gift in the late 1980's  from a friend that I taught Kindergarten with many, many years ago. Little did I know that this book would speak to me in ways that are beyond words. I truly love the thought that this journey I am taking will in a funny way include an old friend that I have never forgotten and learned so much from. Thank you old friend!  Let the fun begin!

Second Day Post

This is the second post of my new adventure.  I am finding it super exciting, while at the same time, very confusing.  In time, I hope to have a great resource for all my kinder parents and anyone else along for the ride.  In the meantime, here is a quote for you... one to ponder.  See ya soon.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. Mahatma Gandhi
