Baby's Space to Offer Products

Dear Friends:

Baby's Space has been lauded by early childhood experts as a model because of our successful formula of research-based curriculum. As a result, I'm a frequent speaker at child care professional meetings where I'm often asked by practitioners, "How can we get our hands on what you do at Baby's Space?"


I'm excited that I can now answer the question because our team at Baby's Space is developing products based on Baby's Space best practices. Coming soon is the launch of the first of many products for sale.

  • Baby's Space Teaching Everyday Moments curriculum kits are easy-to-use monthly teaching kits designed to help teachers prepare with ease and teach with confidence. Look for the kits to be ready in fall, 2013.
  •  "Emotional Readiness. Understanding the Importance of Early Experiences and Mental Health in Preparing Young Children for School Success" is a book I am writing about the importance of emotional health. Watch for a midyear publication.

Our latest endeavor of developing prodDrTR Book Cover ucts for sale is exciting because we are providing high-quality resources to childcare professionals and developing new revenue sources for Baby's Space. Look for more information about our products coming soon!


 Best Regards,

Pi Day!

Thursday, March 14 was a sweet day at Baby's Space. What better way was to learn the magic of 3.14 than by learning to write the symbol and enjoying some pie?

Heroes Marc Markell

Marc Markell
Considered a great benefit granted to college professors, the sabbatical is a rare occasion when a professor's work can become his life - no teaching, no meetings. Our hero Marc Markell is using his sabbatical as an opportunity to reach out to others, which includes spending Tuesday and Thursday mornings at Tatanka Academy tutoring students.


Mark is a professor at St. Cloud University in the Department of Special Education. He's temporarily switched from teaching college students to teaching our second- and third-graders on decoding, comprehension, math computation - adding, subtracting, multiplication, division - and many other subjects, depending on what the students need.


"The primary reason I tutor is because I love working with children on academics and social skills. I also learn so much by tutoring that I am a better teacher educator," said Mark.


Mark said tutoring children is rewarding and exciting. "I have seen several students figure out decoding words or adding with carrying. It's so fun to see the 'light bulb' go off!"


Mark lives in south Minneapolis and he and his partner are busy parents to a ten-year-old son. Mark is also a certified Thanatologist (the study of death, dying and grief) and a certified professional developer for Kansas Learning Strategies so he also spends time educating teachers. Our thanks to Mark for his consistent work at Tatanka Academy as a tutor.
