There are SIX main categories on this blog:
Pre-K / Preschool
Stuff About Me
I work in Early Education, specifically Pre-K and if you need a Preschool, please come check out our Virtual Program, Over The Bay Pre-K. LINK
We know from many studies that the foundational years of learning, and learning to learn are Preschool through the end of Third Grade. And that by the fourth grade, kids that are behind in reading skills, at least half of the curriculum is incomprehensible to them. From the fourth grade forward, kids are reading to learn and if they don't have that reading skill in place, they are falling further and further behind. And I am going to talk a LOT about what that means, and how we help kids get that foundational learning in place.
Literacy skills are about more than reading a word, or sounding it out. It also means being able to "sort it out" know the context, know what it means. For example if I tell you to "put the line over the vowels" and you have no idea what over is, or a vowel, how can you achieve the "simple task".
Homelessness is a wide and deep issue, and ever expanding here in the states, sad but true. And while there are many categories here I focus on the kids, and specifically those preschool through third grade, that are also homeless.
Libraries, these are key points in communities that provide so much more than books to read. And if you know me at all, you know how I love libraries.
And that brings us to the "stuff about me" that's pretty obvious I think. My site, my name, my work, my stuff - it just comes with the territory.
There's a SECRET Seventh Category that will be coming too - and it's all about giving back, and how YOU can help give back too. But shhh that's still very, very behind the scenes.
With my books, tea, and high hopes - until next time!

We know the key to success starts way before school, and Pre-K to the end of Third Grade is the significant foundation for learning success.
