For story time this week, Ms. Tricoli read the book Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree by Robert Barry. They created a bubble map of other words that mean "big," looked at problem and solution, and sequenced the animals in the story.
I taught kindergarten for 16 years and was a district k-1 strategist for 2. I have a masters degree in curriculum and instruction from Dallas Baptist and a doctorate in early childhood studies with a minor in curriculum and instruction from the University of North Texas. I am currently working for Dallas ISD as a prek instructional specialist.
