Celebrating the ABC’s of Teaching Preschool and You!

Celebrating the ABC’s of Teaching Preschool and You!

This post is to celebrate the 20,000 members who have joined Teach Preschool on Facebook and the wonderful bloggers who share their amazing ideas and insights each day.  As a special thank you to each of you who care for and educate our youngest learners, the bloggers and I have put together  “The ABC’s of Teaching Preschoolers”. Be sure to visit my fellow bloggers and check out the fun and insightful tips they have prepared especially for you.

There are three parts to this celebration…

Part one: The ABC’s of Teaching Preschool


The ABC’s of Teaching Preschool is being brought to you by the amazing bloggers whose ideas I regularly share on my Facebook page. In trying to pull all of this together, I put out a request to the bloggers asking them to write an article on teaching preschoolers.  I asked the bloggers to celebrate you – and they came through for me with a bang!! I can’t tell you how thankful I am for their support.

Each blogger chose one letter of the alphabet to focus on and has written something just for this celebration. A few of the letters are even used more than once because I had such a great response to my call for writers.

Take the time to visit each of these blogs and you will discover the ABC’s of Teaching Preschoolers and some wonderful bloggers too.

See the Linky below this post too as a link to each letter will be shared as the blog articles go live!

  • Annette W Posted August 31, 2011 10:45 am

    I included a link up for encouraging reading (aloud) to toddlers who don’t like it. It’s from a parent’s point of view, but thought it could also apply to any educator!
