This book is the third of a four-book series that describes her methods of instruction and classroom management. The book is full of cute illustrations provided by her sister-in-law, Carolyn Smith. There are also numerous photographs of holiday art and special projects for the kids to do that can be both instructional and fun. Patty has reviewed the book with principals, school superintendents, and an instructor at Northern Arizona University. All believed that it is an excellent and practical book for beginning teachers.

Mr. Turkey Visits Our Classroom
One school year in November, a parent came to me with a fun idea. She told me that since we were creating turkeys for an art project and she had a friend that had a turkey for a pet, she wondered if my students might enjoy having a turkey visit our classroom. Of course, I thought that would be a great experience for everyone. And, it truly was for the children and me!
As you can see in this photo, Mr. Turkey was "up" for this very exciting event!
Created and given to me by one of my proud students!
Kindergarten Christmas Program
This Christmas program was presented to the entire student body at our school, the kindergarten parents, and the entire community.
While the kindergarten students acted out the performance, a parent volunteer sang the words for the entire program. Afterward, a holiday party was given for the students and their parents. The kindergarteners were dismissed after the party to go home with their parents. It was a beautiful way to start the Christmas holiday season.
