During her 18 years as a kindergarten teacher she developed a method of teaching that provides an excellent classroom atmosphere in which young children can excel in learning. She believes the first two weeks of school are very important because that is when the teacher sets the stage for an exciting, adventurous and memorable academic school year. During that time her students learned what acceptable behavior was in the classroom and while moving across campus as a group. Once they learned what was acceptable, the rest of the school year fell into place and the children were excited to learn. This drastically reduces discipline problems for the rest of the school year. She has mentored two teachers, at the request of her principal, using these methods and both continue to use them. These methods are simple, effective and straight forward. This book is the second 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 from her Patriotic Programs, sample projects for the kids to do that can be both instructional and fun, as well as organizing procedures and techniques. Patty has reviewed the book with principals, school superintendants and an instructor at Northern Arizona University. All believed that it is an excellent and practical book for beginning teachers.
