My Students

This year, I have a mixed-age class, consisting of a very happy, jumpy, loving, wonderful three to five year olds! What I love most about this mix of kids is how nurturing and guiding the older ones are towards the younger ones. They learn how to teach, care, and guide their younger peers throughout the day. We have an entire class of very smart cookies! About 70% of them came in September knowing no English or very little and now they cannot stop talking in fluent English all day long! Watching how they have learned and grown has been so rewarding knowing us as teachers played a major role in their learning. They really learn through play all day, and we encourage them to ask questions, have lengthy conversations with us to expand their vocabulary, teach specific subjects at certain times, and, during freeplay, they explore on their own. We teach them math and science skills (STEM) through manipulative play, and in the science area and block area. They learn how to interact with each other through imaginative play in the dramatic play area where we have new studies every six weeks. Children learn so much at this age!

My Project

These new beds from Lakeshore are very sturdy and will help our children sleep safely and comfortably since our current beds are falling apart! (They are over 30 years old!) Our children work and play very hard each day, and many days they come in not as well-rested as they should be. So a much-needed nap on a safe and comfortable bed is needed each day so their bodies can rest so they can learn at their highest potential! Our children are already able to make their own beds by themselves and also put them away! They're amazing!
