Meet the Teacher

Welcome to The Very Busy Kindergarten Blog.  
I started this blog in 2011 as a place to share my teaching ideas.  
I started teaching kindergarten in 2009 and 
before kindergarten I taught first grade for 7 years.  I guess you can say I just love working with the little ones.
I love to read children’s literature to my students.  I enjoy finding stories that relate to all content areas.  I enjoy watching their faces as they make connections each day to the learning around them.

A lot of the ideas I share on my blog come from the books, workshops and blogs I read.  I collaberate a lot with the other kindergarten teachers and paraprofessionals at my school.  I try to take the great ideas I see and work them into the exit expectations of the Archdioceses of Milwaukee where I teach.

  2. Hi Sue!
    I have followed your blog for a bit now and I love all your ideas. I taught Kindergarten for 3 years and then 1st grade for 2 before I left to stay home will my little boy. I loved Kindergarten, it was so wonderful to see how far those little ones could go in a year and just the freshness they had for learning. I was looking at your post today, smiling about past memories of decorated doors and I noticed that you mentioned prayer. I am so curious to know what type of school you teach at. The little miracle that I stopped teaching for is now 3 and school is just around the corner for him. I have considered homeschooling but I am also looking at other options. I would to hear more about how your school runs and if it is private or church ran. Thanks so much. My heart skipped a beat to see that prayer was part of your school day.

  3. Hi Sue,
    I saw you are using Don't Squeal unless it's a big deal...I use this book all the time. We read it and then I made a poster of kid sized/ adult sized problems. It has velcro on each column. I then present situation cards for the kids to sort into kind of problem. Lastly, we make pigs that hang up all year. Good luck!

  4. Hi, Where did you find the soap holders for crayons? Would love to do this idea? Thanks

  5. I generally keep crayons in those little pails from target. Thanks for reading. Sue
