Kari Ann Ramadorai

My passions are books, research, and sharing hands-on lessons. I’m grumpy when I don’t use my abilities to their fullest and running all-out on my latest passion. Bringing the youngest learners my love of literature and science is one of those dearest passions. I’m a science fiction and fantasy writer and an early childhood specialist who focuses on all aspects of media curriculum. These two passions are my world. Like so many in this decade, I wear a lot of hats. Some are fancy, some exotic-looking and covered in science paraphernalia for the classroom, others have barn dust from my home-life caring for horses and other critters.

Science and science fiction

Communicating science can change the world. We’re bringing the concept of possibilities and how to evaluate experiences and content to those who have not experienced something before that interaction. Teaching critical thinking and scientific process to children will bring a new generation of thinkers into our work force. Using science fiction and popular entertainment as medium to communicate philosophical arguements without bias and key scientific concepts will better inform our population.

Library Media Specilization

Looking at the available media in the Early Childhood library from a child-centric point of view changes your organization priorities. Dewey lite classification helps children and busy teachers. Teachers need curriculum-filling information and for their librarian to have a list of go-to, inclusive stories for life-lessons, too, not to mention a fact-based sicence section with hands-on lessons for the children.

Early Childhood Education Blog

Sharing my lessons, thoughts, and experiences with the Early Childhood Education world because we build leaders, scientists, and other free thinkers early with our guidance. I work part time as the school librarian and media specialist, so look forward to resources for curriculum and social and emotional development.

Writing Blog

Through these affiliate links, you’re supporting me and my work in bringing more quality media content to every child – and my own writing.

I’m a writer and Early Childhood Education specialist Kari Ann Ramadorai. My fiction bring together the science I love and faerie tales. I’m also an early childhood-specializing school librarian who spends her days reading children’s fiction and designing curriculum. I love reading and sharing my finds and lessons almost as much as I love researching science and technology and then putting characters into awkward situations with it. Check out the blog for more information, or the shop for my work and recommended children’s reading.

Backups and Brain-space

Focusing on the Blog

As you know, I work in education. My hobby, writing, is something I hope to grow into over time. I call it a hobby because the time and money I put into writing at this point moves around my day job and does not break even in book sales. So what's an early childhood...

Recently a friend and writer confided that he had come to a conclusion about his forward path to a writing career. Reading through his well-documented and thoroughly experienced paragraphs on his journey-to-date and the upcoming year’s prospects, I was struck by the...

Accountability and Time Management

Writing is usually done by yourself, but sometimes doing it by yourself isn't effective. There's nothing like writing with a friend to help you keep track of your time. if you're writing a blog post instead of editing a chapter, it still counts. Here's the thing:...
