  9. What a fabulous class you have. Our team would LOVE to come however its about a 2 hr drive one way. Is there any way you can share your lesson plan set up to give us an idea of how to use in our room?

  10. Wow, what a turn out for your open house. It certainly shows that there is a need and strong interest in learning from the best leaders in our profession. I have been following, really more like "stalking" you through your Amazing Blogs. As I am new to the FDK program for next year I was excited to see your class in person. Your students are so engaged in their own learning. They are the future leaders in this world.

    I love how you include the theory and research to support your posts. I am always amazed how you find the time to share your inquiry's and leaning journey with fellow educators. It is very generous and most appreciated. I have purchased many of the books that you have recommended and have never been disappointed in any of your selections. A place for wonder was my favourite.

    I also follow many of the Blogs that follow. It is nice to have someone preview these Blogs. You have also motivated me to create my own Blog. Technology is new to me but so satisfying to see that even a tech rookie like myself can manage to put together a Classroom Blog. I think it is important to show my students and parents how and what we are learning.
    Thank you for allowing us to peek into your classroom. Your students must be so proud!

  11. Hi joanne,
    I just wanted to thank you for inviting us into your classroom Thursday night. I am really inspired and it has really made me look at home I would like to run my FDK program.
    Thank you
