Welcome to The Virtual Vine!

The Virtual Vine is a resource for Early Childhood teachers, preschool through second grade. It's a site filled with ideas and activities  to make teaching and learning FUN through themes and units, displays, literacy and math connections.  You can also tour my classroom, find teacher inspirations and tips, website help, printables, links galore, and a whole host of other things as well. Included are things that I've done in my classroom as well as ideas that have been shared among teachers, hence the site name, The Virtual Vine. I hope you find lots of things that you can use in your own classroom. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you come back often.

Update: In 2014 I retired from teaching.  Teaching was such a huge part of my life I was afraid to take that gigantic step, although I knew it was time.  But although I have missed the students, my friends and the parts of teaching I loved, it WAS the right decision and I've loved retirement!  I have gone back and done some teaching part time and I still dabble in online educational resources.  Sadly, I have yet to spend any time updating The Virtual Vine and have put that time into my blog Every Day is the Weekend.  So stop by and take a peek, you'll even find some free teaching resources there .... just like always.  ;)
