3 Take-aways From the NAEYC Conference Recap, and TPT Cyber Smile Sale

Hello, everybody! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I got to see lots of friends and little baby Osric. Being a grandma is SOOO fantastic! I'd like to give a shout-out to all my new friends that I met at the NAEYC conference. Everyone in Florida was so kind and welcoming. It was a great time.

Here are three things that I came away with from the conference.

1. You can have students lay on their stomachs during story time with their hands propping up their chins. I tried this in my own room, and it worked like a dream. It made story time so much more cozy and comfortable.

2. Use more songs where students can play patty-cake style movements, such as Miss Mary Mack. The presenter told us that crossing the center line of the body (hand clapping across) exercises more of the brain and helps kids become more alert.

3. Allow children chances to use their whole body. Have them move around more. Walk and talk. Use whole-body games. Jump around.

I also wanted to let you know that I'm going to put my Teachers Pay Teachers store on sale for Monday and Tuesday as part of the sitewide Cyber Smile Sale. Everything is 20% off, so enjoy shopping and saving!

Have a great week!
