My Students

My students are young learners who are just beginning the first part of their educational journey. They are bright young students who love to learn and have fun. We are a loving classroom who likes to find different ways to learn and make things work.

Young children have a mind of their own and create some of the most imaginative things that we as adults sometimes don't think of and that is what I love about my students, their imagination to create different things with anything around them.

I love how my students can learn from each other and are willing to help a friend when needed.

The children feed off of each others' learning skills. The older preschool children are always willing to help the younger children in learning new activities or rules. I love how my students set examples for each other.

My Project

Art is a way for us as people to be able to express ourselves. I want to be able to give experiences to my students to be creative by expressing themselves through art.

I will use the art materials provides so that children are able to see different things that can be used to express their creative side.

They will also be able to see the different ways art can be used to be creative.

I think it is important for a child to be able to be creative as a way of their own self expression and I will use the materials so my class will be able to know the importance of artistry.
