Made It! Poll Time, Now!

Well we hope everybody survived another week of school and a smooth routine is falling into place in your classrooms. It is wonderful to know that children are similar everywhere!

As hard as it is sometimes, remember to take time to enjoy your weekend! We love visiting floh markts around Germany. Floh markts are similar to flea markets in the states, but usually offer a wider variety of booths and vendors.



It’s fun to look and find some great treasures. Over the years, we’ve found some great “school” treasures.


During the first weeks before the children start back to school, preschool and kindergarten teachers conduct home visits with the families and children who will be in their classrooms. We think this is an AWESOME way to begin our year. It provides a wonderful opportunity to meet new students in an environment that is comfortable for them, AND a lot fewer tears on the first day of school. However, we know some schools set up visits in the classroom for assessing children before they start so teachers will have an idea on how to manage and diversify instruction. We want to know what you think!

We all do things a little bit differently and some of us are more passionate about one topic than another. So we thought it would be a great idea to share our passions through a poll format. We want your feedback! Occasionally, we will come up with a different topic that affects teachers and students. And we want to know how you feel about the topic.   

Should EC teachers conduct home visits or classroom visits.

Would love to hear why you feel strongly about your choice in the comment section!

  1. I would LOVE to visit our students in their home environment before school starts. It is so important to have the whole family involved in their child's learning. I feel especially in kindergarten and pre-school,starting the families on a positive educational journey is so vital for the following years. How fortunate you are!
