My Students

I teach a Pre-K class of 20 children. My students are creative, curious, energetic and funny 4 and 5 year olds! They love to play, learn, create and explore in the classroom and outside. The class loves to talk about everything the see and do.

My class is so curious about everything they see outside and eager to learn about bugs, insect, trees, plants, weather and anything to do with science.

We would love to be able to explore more science activities inside and outside. Engaging play and learning activities provide the best foundation for early learning.

My Project

Exploring our environment and all that is in it are just a part of our early learning skills. Our classroom loves to explore and ask questions about everything they see inside our classroom and also outside on the playground. These tools will help me to engage the children and build the foundation for future learning.

We will use these materials to explore, experiment and extend science learning.

The children will be able to use these materials in the discovery area and also outside. We have our discovery area open everyday and these materials will ensure that the children have engaging materials to use. Part of the creative curriculum we use is hands on discovery and these things will provide endless opportunities for just that!
