Ep. 44 Getting Ready for Kindergarten with Special Guests Brittany Madden and Reneta Gilliland
Hey everybody! In this week's episode, we are chatting about getting ready for kindergarten! Any upcoming kindergarten mamas out there? This one's for you! We also have TWO guests with us - two of our own kids' kindergarten teachers! Brittany Madden was Mattie Grace's teacher last year, and Reneta Gilliland was Thad's kindergarten teacher the year before! They both bring very different experiences and perspectives and we are so grateful they both agreed to chat with us!
Mrs. G told us about the Lap Time statements - really fascinating information about the value of "laptime" with your kids. And we also talked about the Kindergarten Toolkit - find them on instagram here! Carrie, the founder of Kindergarten Toolkit, is a former kindergarten teacher as well. She created these tools for her boys and then wanted to help equip other moms in getting their preschoolers kindergarten ready. And she has provided the code "BRANDNEW" for you guys to get 15% off your own toolkit! Woohoo!!
From our "I'm Totally Into..." segment:
Brittany is totally into jumpsuits! Here's a round up of super cute ones at Target!
Renetta is totally into her new granddaughter. She's even setting up a library for her! (This made Courtney so happy!) She's also into fresh flowers, too! Can anyone spell R - E - T - I - R - E - M - E - N - T ? Here's a fun article about how to make super simple flower arrangements, INCLUDING Mrs. G's favorite, carnations!
Courtney is totally into Easy Open Lunchboxes - these are perfect for your new little kindergartner!
We hope this episode was helpful for those of you with preschoolers getting ready for "big school!" Let us know of any questions you may have, and we can pass them along to Ms. Madden or Mrs. G! Have a great week, mamas!
