The Sunday Scoop on Dr. Jean!

Thanks to Teaching Trio for this fun Sunday Scoop linky!

Well, there's nothing too exciting about my three Have-tos and my two Hope-tos.  Pretty self-explanatory. But let me tell you about my Happy-to!

Lookie, Lookie who I got to visit!

I knew of Dr. Jean before blogs even existed, I think!

Some family business took me home and it just so happened that Dr. Jean was in town nearby, so I bopped in and said hello.  If you haven't been to one of her conferences, you really gotta go because it's a treat. You'll hear about early childhood education at it's finest and walk away with no less than a million ideas to use with your kiddos. I just sit there grinning and appreciating the fact that I get to work with young children... and writing down notes as fast as I can, of course :)

If she's not coming your way you can still check out her blog. She is one of the most faithful daily bloggers and I get ideas every morning to use in my day. She has ALL sorts of resources on there, too. Spend a little time gathering treats by clicking on her button below.

And if you don't know Dr. Jean videos you can check her out here on my Pinterest Brain Break Board.

This is one of my kids' favorite brain break videos. They make up all sorts of new verses featuring other fruits and veges, usually getting inspired at snack time. They've even added an egg that goes "cheep" though I don't think we've had eggs for snack :)  I find my Pinterest Board one of the best places to store hand selected brain break videos. Pin away!

Now scoot on back now to The Sunday Scoop!

    1. There are some goodies on there. The kids love seeing the icons and choosing. I distinguish between brain breaks which are pretty directed, and other simple movement/dance videos which are more free form. They are on two different boards. Enjoy. Kathleen

  3. We love Dr. Jean too! How exciting! My kiddos love, Who Let the Letters Out?

    Luv My Kinders

    1. Yes, that one is a goodie. And What Does the Letter Say-- sung like What Does the Fox Say. And our current favorite is the Yo! It's Your Birthday, which you can find here–
      See you later. Kathleen
