Top Ten of 2011 - #8 and #7

This week I'm reviewing the posts most visited during 2011. New posts will resume next week. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

"All children in our classes want to feel valued, that someone cares about them. They want the approval of adults. We teachers have a powerful impact on the lives of boys and girls. I think that three things are vital to showing our care to kids." This post reviews ways to build relationships and convey value to kids.

Kindergartners literacy skills are developing in many different ways. Providing a variety of writing items and paper uses those developing skills for more learning. Maps use symbols to convey meaning. Highlighters write without covering up what's already on the paper. This post examines how kids used those materials in my classroom.

More countdown tomorrow.
