i have a "method"! i feel special now!!! LOL

you will get alot of good ideas if you google montessori, or reggio emilia. both approaches are different, but i take what i like from each and "smoosh" them together. you can google emergent curriculum too.

i love the creative curriculum (you can get it on amazon)

and the book "reflecting childrens lives: a handbook for planning child centered curriculum" by deb curtis is another good one.

and to be honest, i have THIS forum to thank. i came here with questions, and another member here said something that lit a spark under me and i have been hooked ever since. i can NEVER go back to a formal curriculum.
