I'm not actually hibernating, but we are studying bears today for my son's preschool learning. In my search for a unit study on the topic, I found this childhood gem:

  Teddy Bear Action Song:Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn around
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear touch the ground
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear tie your shoe
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear that will do.

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, go upstairs
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, brush your hair
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn off the light
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, say goodnight!

Aww, jump-rope memories from kindergarten! 

Can't wait to teach it to my kids after nap time. 

Every once in a while, writing takes a back-burner while I do intensive research on different curricula and restructure the way we do preschool. I found my file boxes while de-cluttering the other day, so that threw me into organizing more. Some of the things I made for my oldest a few years ago (apple-shaped red felt pieces, etc.) are now perfect for my two-year-old who's learning colors, letters, counting, and speaking. 

I know a lot of my fellow writers are teachers, and a few are fellow homeschoolers. Since my four-year-old is getting into thicker instruction (by thicker I mean, I really need to consolidate these three progress binders) and is reading early readers by himself, I decided to start a blog to chronicle our adventures and to help me spot routines that are working vs. ones that aren't. If you're into home learning or just curious, follow me at...

In other news, I can't believe it's already Thursday! What are your weekend plans?


  1. I am a preschool teacher. Er...a master-degreed early childhood teacher with 14 years experience. I love all preschool teachers, so I really hope that all you homeschoolers find all the information you need to help your kids be successful in ALL areas of development! (really, I do!)

  2. Thank you, Erica! I hope so, too! Wow. I admire anyone who went all the way through a master's program. *bows before you* I love teachers, too! Both sets of grandparents were teachers, actually, so I tend to see them as nurturers. As a former public school student, I was really unhappy with the system inside which the teachers had to operate. But hey, everybody loves preschool! :)


Speak up! You will be heard...or read.
