This fall at
the preschool where I practice, we have had an unusually high number of
children in need of full evaluations all for various reasons. For some, they
were simply due for their re-evaluations which happen every 2 years at this age
in our district. For others, we had decided as a team that several children

Jamie Zarmanian, shared with our preschool classes this fabulous recipe for
pumpkin spice Play-Doh. The entire classroom smelled like cinnamon cookies! The

that pictures of the pacing boards be posted. Here are ones that I made and use
daily in the classroom:

This is our fourth and final rainforest recipe for this
summer! It was been a fun four weeks, full of delicious and creative eats. The
kids really loved all of the recipes, as did the parents! I have had several
families share with me that they tried the recipes at home. Many enjoyed making
them with their children and were pleasantly ...
I have been using recipe-based language lessons off and on
for about 10 years or so in various classroom settings, as well as in homecare,
and each time similar results occur. Not only do the parents, teachers and
children seem to really enjoy and anticipate the recipe of the week, but I also
see positive changes in the way the children ...
