Janet Steever replied to ALYSON CARROLL's discussion Einstein -Chapter 8, Getting to Know You-How Children Develop Social Intelligence
"Each chapter has held such good advice and affirmation of what we are already doing. The children we teach at 4-5 years of age are on the cusp of so much self awareness, social development. Communication, discussions, and strong relationships…"

Janet Steever replied to Susan Dugan's discussion Chapter 7: Who Am I in the group Somers Point Teachers
"I particularly agree with your final statement about commending children for effort and perserverance. I have a group of about 4 that are very low. Most times they want to give up before they even start. I find that I am trying to do activiities…"

Janet Steever replied to Kristie Leonard's discussion Einstein Never Used Flash Cards Ch 6 The Quest to Define Intelligence in the group Somers Point Teachers
"I agree with what everyone else has commented on. I particularly liked the section on conservation. Piaget experimented with a child with 2 glasses of juice, same glasses and same amts. The child could see that they both had the same. But once one…"

Janet Steever replied to Nicole Medvedik's discussion Chapter 5: Einstein Never Used Flash Cards in the group Somers Point Teachers
"I really enjoyed this chapter. It mainly focused on the preschooler as an emergent reader. I was very encouraged by the fact that we as preschool teachers are approaching the reading process correctly. Our reading program focuses on the phonemic…"

Janet Steever replied to Jane Leonardo's discussion Einstein Never Used Flashcards...Chapter 3. Playing with numbers, How children learn about Quantity in the group Somers Point Teachers
"I love math and I really enjoyed this chapter. Like Jane, I taught Math Their Way in 1st grade and continue to use many practices from the program for the pre-k. I also would love to check out Big Math for Little People. I felt this chapter was…"

Janet Steever replied to Susan Dugan's discussion Einstein Didn't Use Flashcards in the group Somers Point Teachers
"While reading the first two chapters, I actually found myself cheering and even resorted to highlighting several passages. Most were sections I felt parents of today, pushy or neglectful, need to read or know. I found myself reflecting back to my…"

Janet Steever replied to Lisa Litz-Neavear's discussion Boy Writers in the group Somers Point Teachers
"Just as a side note, I went to two great wksps in years past. Through these I learned that boys definitely do learn differently and have continued to blend as many physical activities into their choice and outside play, hammering nails into wood,…"

Janet Steever replied to Lisa Litz-Neavear's discussion Boy Writers in the group Somers Point Teachers
"I will try to remember this idea. At this point, I have no extra time at all, but once I assess everyone in Nov. for conferences, I will try this. It should be interesting!"

Janet Steever replied to Lisa Litz-Neavear's discussion Boy Writers in the group Somers Point Teachers
"I wasn't going to reply to this, but was interested in the topic. Then today, during our choice centers, I noticed the same characteristics in their "play". It was very interesting to watch after reading the comments. It seems to…"

Janet Steever replied to Susan Dugan's discussion Whatever It Takes - Early Childhood Education in the group Somers Point Teachers
"I know on a personal level that this is true. My grandson went to kindergarten this past year and it was his first school experience. Before this he attended a daycare that at times did run-off wksts. My daighter is a single parent renting in a…"

Janet Steever replied to Jennifer Luff's discussion Setting the Objective - I Don't Get It! in the group Somers Point Teachers
"I do know that when I specifically tell the students why we are doing something and what our objective is, they try much harder and seem to have a vested interest in the goal. Of course at my level it may be the objective of learning sounds so that…"

Janet Steever replied to Jennifer Luff's discussion Preschool Teachers - Convention Ideas in the group Somers Point Teachers
"That was an another reason why I liked Debbie Clement. Just about every activity and possibly all of her activities stressed the importance of getting the kids to cross the midline. I've always known the importance but have never made it a top…"

Janet Steever replied to Jennifer Luff's discussion Preschool Teachers - Convention Ideas in the group Somers Point Teachers
"HWT states that the pre-kers are developmentally ready for the uppercase only. Any written text in the classroom, I use both upper and lower but with the children writing--only upper is used. Right after teaching 1st grade and going into pre-k, I…"

Janet Steever replied to Jennifer Luff's discussion Preschool Teachers - Convention Ideas in the group Somers Point Teachers
"The Thursday crew ended up mainly attending Debbie Clements wksps. She was fabulous and her songs covered each area of our curriculum. Katie purchased 2 cds and I believe she has a friend that acquired a couple. We are hoping to burn these cds so we…"
