My Students

My students come from diverse multicultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. More than half come from second language homes and others have special educational needs. Kindergarten children are curious about school and the world around them, but we do not often have the resources to properly develop this essential interest. Because of the diversity in our community, many of my students have limited resources and have had no previous school experiences. My classroom is their first educational experience and opportunity for learning.

My Project

Learning about insects can be very exciting to young children. Introducing how to respect nature and not be afraid of bugs is an important concept for young children to learn and experience. Using puzzles, books, games, puppets, math centers, science viewers, pretend insects and bug art materials are all engaging ways to introduce insects in exciting, fun, hands-on activities. Creating opportunities for my young students would inspire and "sting" their interest in the natural environment. It could also teach them to develop an interest in science rather than to scream when they see a flying insect or crawling bug. They could then expand their learning and begin to identify, count or just observe what insects do -- just like young entomologists.
