New Year's resolution

Here at school I always have a long list of things I'd like to get better at. I know this is just a part of teaching, especially for a reflective practice which requires daily revisiting, re-thinking, revising and then re-launching the next day, the next week and the next school year.

However, for this new year, there is one thing that I really want to keep working on more than anything else, and that is the friendly sign project that began last year with the Rainbow room children. I can picture so clearly a series of child-designed signs popping up around the city, and this vision makes me want to make it happen. But I also think it would be a great project to use to bring together new collaborations. I have asked other classes, schools and college professors looking for someone to partner with, but haven't had much luck so far. 

Maybe it doesn't just have to happen here in Richmond. Maybe some of you reading this would like to collaborate with the Sabot preschool children and here is an invitation. Join the friendly sign project!


  1. For Anna...know that in Columbus, Ohio at the Ohio State University Child Care Program, an assistant teacher in the kindergarten room would like to join you. As I am a dreamer, I often struggle with the "doing it" piece. I read about your project last year, and promptly filed in my heart, mind, and notebooks. So on behalf of my 19 children, and potentially 7 preschool rooms...we accept the invitation. Wishing you well, Leann

  2. Yay! Let's me agolden
