Welcome to Kinder Kid at Heart

Hi! My name is Katie Friedl and I have taught Kindergarten in Chicago for 13 years. It is not always easy, but its worth it! I will be writing about my tips and tribulations about teaching K in Chicago. Stay tuned to be inspired (hopefully… crossing my fingers) and probably even get a little giggle… at my expense I’m sure!


In my classroom, I use a combination of TPT products (from great sellers), some of my own TPT products, EngageNY materials, and school based curriculums.


Building a rapport with my students is my BIGGEST impact within my classroom. I’ll try to give you tips, ideas and even some special event activities you can try out!

Classroom Materials

Teachers are ALWAYS in need of classroom materials. I will try to give some tips & tricks on how to get those much needed classroom supplies and materials!
