11/28/00 Question 2 / Concerned Provider

Dear Visitors,
     I have two four year olds that I watch in my daycare home.  Lately, they have been pretending to smoke cigarettes.  At first I told them that I did not want them to pretend that because it was bad for their health.  This did not stop the behavior so I explained that smoking is no longer allowed inside buildings so they would have to wait until we were outside to pretend.  I am feeling guilty allowing them the opportunity to smoke--am I doing the right thing?

12/10/00 Question 3 / Clueless about Hanukkah

Dear Visitors,
     I am planning on doing lessons on the three December holidays Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa.  I have researched the holidays and feel that I am prepared for these lessons but I feel I am missing an important fact about Hanukkah.  I want to know if there are special types of candles or color candles used in the menorah and if so what is its significance? I would be truly grateful to anyone who can answer this question.

12/27/00 Question 4/ Gameless Teacher

Dear Visitors,
     I am 14 years old. I teach Sunday school at my church to preschoolers. I have 5 boys and 2 girls in my class. When I first decided to teach I figured we could do arts and crafts but I soon found out that the kids really don't like those kind of things. I was wondering if anyone knew of any games we could play. They have to be quiet, fun, and not require a lot of space or running.

4/5/01 Question 11/ Curriculum Needed

Dear Visitors,
     I am a certified early childhood teacher but want to stay home with my children so I am planning to teach a preschool in my home.  I have been looking at curriculums trying to find one that I could base off from to add to and adjust but haven't had much luck.  I plan to teach two-hour sessions two days a week and plan on having a session for 3-year-olds and one for 4-year-olds.  I would appreciate any suggestions of curriculums to look at.  I'm not particularly intere
sted in ones that supply all of the materials--they seem to costly. Especially if I didn't use all of the materials.
