Kathleen replied to Carrie Campbell's discussion THGY Chapter 2: First Day of School in the course Little House on the Prairie Book Club
"Beth, that's a good point about Laura not having backup. Nowadays teachers have other teachers and principals for help and support as needed, but back then Laura had no one and had to figure out a solution by herself. I guess if Clarence really…"

Kathleen replied to Carrie Campbell's discussion THGY Chapter 10: Almanzo Says Good-By in the course Little House on the Prairie Book Club
"I, too, thought it was sad that Laura didn't speak up; then again, when I was her age (and even now, sometimes), I would have "toughed it out" as well. I had that same thought about the temperature...ONLY 15 below is still mighty…"

Kathleen replied to Carrie Campbell's discussion THGY Chapter 9: The Superintendent's Visit in the course Little House on the Prairie Book Club
"I could relate to Laura's nervousness in this chapter. Even though I've been teaching for 15 years, and have done well in the past, I always have a bit of the "butterflies" whenever I have an classroom observation coming up. No…"

Kathleen replied to Carrie Campbell's discussion THGY Chapter 5: A Stiff Upper Lip in the course Little House on the Prairie Book Club
"As a teacher who's had to deal with various mischief from students, I was happy to see Laura come out on top and find a way to get through to her students. It's probably a lot easier to do that when there's only 5 of them (as opposed…"

Kathleen replied to Carrie Campbell's discussion THGY Chapter 3: One Week in the course Little House on the Prairie Book Club
"I liked the idea of Laura continuing her studies in the evening. It showed that she was a lifelong learner, and that you're never too old to learn new things! I also thought it was sweet of her to take care of Ruby; I think it helped her relate…"

Kathleen replied to Carrie Campbell's discussion THGY Chapter 2: First Day of School in the course Little House on the Prairie Book Club
"I wasn't really surprised at the amount of children -- I would like to think that it gave both Mr. Brewster and Laura comfort knowing that the school was small, and it sounds like they really needed a teacher. Plus, they were paying Laura for…"

Kathleen replied to Carrie Campbell's discussion THGY Chapter 1: Laura Leaves Home in the course Little House on the Prairie Book Club
"I really felt so sad for Laura in this chapter. She was young, had never been away from home before, and about to teach school, which she had never done. (I'll talk about relating to the apprehension of teaching in the next chapter!) I think Pa…"

Kathleen replied to Carrie Campbell's discussion Chapter 10 - Three Days Blizzard in the course Little House on the Prairie Book Club
"I read this chapter last week while I was at the beach on vacation (yes, I was a little behind in my reading; I'm all caught up now!). I did get hungry when I read the description of Almanzo's pancakes, but I was so excited when I saw…"

Kathleen replied to Carrie Campbell's discussion Farmer Boy Chapter 21: County Fair in the course Little House on the Prairie Book Club
"I grew up and still live in the NYC suburbs, so I've never been to a county fair, with the exception of the Westchester County Fair (which was more like a carnival with rides and such). So, I did enjoy reading this chapter and learning…"

Kathleen replied to Carrie Campbell's discussion Farmer Boy chapter 18: Keeping House in the course Little House on the Prairie Book Club
"I loved this chapter because it made me think that children weren't always perfect back then. My siblings and I were never really left home alone for an extended period of time -- more because they didn't really do much traveling as…"

Kathleen replied to Carrie Campbell's discussion Farmer Boy chapter 19: Early Harvest in the course Little House on the Prairie Book Club
"I thought that was very smart -- and unusual -- for Mother to go to the bank herself, but the situation with the horse thieves might have contributed to her fear. And even though I just worked 13 straight days, I felt guilty being tired while…"
