About k-2 Punks

Welcome to K-2 Punks! These are chronicles, tales, sagas, rants, essays – a babbling of words by an educator, grad student, and writer who still plays with Tonka trucks, Legos, and blocks from time to time. On the serious flip, this is a blog that explores the value of of protecting and preserving free play to support real democracy and education.

My editor in chief and friend on the left is more than just a “poster kid”, she is a master at play – to be taken seriously, as she started it all!

Pirate any and all of the content here at K-2 Punks – steal only the good stuff, leave the rest. All I ask in return is a bit of credit, where credit is due. Linking and sharing gets you extra credit:-)

Disclaimer: Proofreading is my weakest link. I highly recommend getting out your red pen. Maybe toss in some shades of black here and there too!

    As I am looking for research on teachable moments and black widow spiders at the Early Childhood Education Center that I run, I FOUND YOU! WOW! You are on the same page as myself. Thank you. If you would like to hear what I did, what I got in trouble for and how stupid city folks spread fear, just let me know. Right now you are my fav site. PS I know the Ooey Gooey lady from way back-she is awesome.

    Thanks for your comment Devora,

    The notorious Ooey Gooey lady, I’d have to agree is Righteous! I’m glad she’s another defender of keeping the integrity, of the kids inner wildness, in tack. She used a quote of mine for one of her marketing testimonials. After attending her conference, I told her: “I had a brain bashing good time!” I advise every one in the field of early childhood education to go and see this woman, live, and in action. And thanks for visiting the Preschool Punk.

    Hey—great site! Thought your little punk rocker might like some punk rock made just for him: Jam Toast’s “Silly grown-ups, punk is for kids.” It’s three chord fun for the whole family. Check out http://www.jamtoast.ca for more info.

    I’m adding your site as a reference in my website on future studies and alternatives for children: earlyfutures.com.

    Thanks for everything! I look forward to sharing this site with friends and peers.
