The author created this unique resource text realizing that students needed one place to record their ideas, thoughts, and best practices from their observation and student teaching experiences. The beginning of the text contains chapters that teach students who and what to observe for each chapter. The next section gives students step-by-step instructions on how to reflect on their recorded observations. The last section is an actual journal that gives students additional space to record their thoughts and ideas. Later, when students have their own classrooms to manage they will be able to refer back to this journal and incorporate their previous experiences into their lesson plans and activities.

    Creativity Revived!

    Ever since I bought this book my classroom has become more alive. I feel that my creative energy has been revived from when I first began teaching. I recommend that each early childhood teacher have this book in their classroom to help guide their creativity.
