Great Find for Educators!

Most of my clients are managers of preschools. Most such have little business and managerial background, so to fill that need, and the usual interest of most managers, I have been posting current management topics. However, most preschool educators care most about education and young children. So today, with all due respect to the typical manager, I am going to fill a need for those educators.
I HAVE A GREAT FIND FOR YOU!
Teachers and grandmothers alike have been telling me they just can’t find good books to buy for their children. One said she made a concerted search. Nothing at Scholastic Books, nothing in any of the bookstores in town, nothing anywhere was satisfactory.Then, when I joined Christian Educators Association, I was given a book, entitled, Character under attack. It told of one teacher/author’s frustration that stories with moral or didactic intent were disallowed. I know this is true. It has been true since the early 70s since I’ve tried to write. Well, this fellow just opened his own publishing house. He has written series of children stories, and young adult stories, and some curricula too. Check it out: www.advancepublishing.com

Best on your new school year.

What books are on your summer reading list?

The Fourth of July, or better said: Independence Day, always gets me in the mood to read some history. Last summer, I did a series on the New England Primer. This summer I read the biography of John Adams. Then I found some “Orations” for Independence Day celebrations. I can’t help but turn these into lessons. As it is, I am working on some civics lessons for older elementary. I think we might be recreating a celebration at Braintree or even a Philadelphia deliberation in a 4 year old classroom. We might be pasting cockades on hats in the tods and twos. We might be singing “Yankee Doodle Dandy” in the three. What are you doing? What is your class reading this summer?
