After a three year hiatus from teaching, during which I have gone back to school, spent hundreds of dollars on books and classes to try to get an education in a different field (healthcare) , then realizing that I could never love my job in healthcare as a surgical tech as much as I love teaching, I have decided to drop out of my university program and go back to my first love, teaching. I quit my program about a month ago, took some time off and started looking for a job. Today I got hired at a very good private educational preschool for a part time afternoon position teaching three year olds. All of my preschool experience has been with four, five and six year olds so it will be an adjustment working with the younger ones. But my question is about the curriculum the preschool uses, The Letter People. I am familiar with this program only in that I've heard of it. At my previous preschool we used Frog Street Press. I did a bit of checking into the Letter People and it seems the songs are old and much more complicated and I wondered how young children could make meaningful connections with songs that are wordy and have melodies that aren't familiar to them? I would like to know if anyone uses this curriculum or has any experience with it and how is it used with three year olds? I loved Frog Street Press and when I asked the director about it she told me it was too cutesy and simplistic and the Letter People is much more advanced academically. I'd love to hear some input about this curriculum. I'm very excited about this new job and I want to learn all I can about this new curriculum and figure out how I can make the best of it. Thanks!
