The Wonderful Thing about Wall Wisher

Wow it has been forever since I’ve blogged anything!  Been a busy year and I’ve just completed my internship!  While I was teaching kindergarten I decided to make an electronic word wall for families to visit that featured the math vocabulary we were learning in class.  I found wallwisher.com which allowed me to post videos and links to go along with each word.  Thought it was a great tool so I’ve decided to share.  Here is my wall!

Waldorf Reading

Came across an interesting blog post about how children are taught to read in a Waldorf school.  I have been working in a Waldorf inspired school for the past couple weeks and the children there love stories and reading.  The older children (grade 5 and 6) read quite a bit.  I’m not sure yet how I feel about this method versus the ‘traditional’ public school methods of teaching, but I do think that there are benefits of letting children develop of love of reading rather than a tolerance of it because they have to. Here is a link to the blog post.
