Who am I?
This site is a collection of the play ideas I have done with my children that I wanted to share with other mothers and care givers. I believe in PLAY!! I hope you and the children you interact with enjoy these ideas as much as my children and I did.
Feel free to add any of these ideas to your own blog with a link or source site. I get many of my ideas through other blogs and books and try to remember and site all sources.
I am an elementary teacher and literacy coach. I loved being a classroom teacher. Currently as a literacy coach, I get the unique opportunity to work across grade levels and with many talented teachers. I learn more about literacy and child development everyday. While the page "PreReading skills" is not my largest, it is my latest passion!
If you are looking for PlayIsEssential on Facebook, it is gone. I deleted it because I could not keep up with the spam.
