My Students

I teach Pre-K at a Title I school in Louisiana. My students are 4 years old and many of them are experiencing school for the first time! I love that my students are so enthusiastic about school and learning new things.

In this classroom we use play as the vehicle for learning.

The students love center time! This is where we do our best learning. We build social and emotional skills, use our brains to think critically, and our hands to create!

Developmentally appropriate Pre-K needs hands-on learning, so we need materials! Many students do not have much experience with true play-based learning, as most children do not play with manipulatives and tinkering toys at home. My students are ready to expand their knowledge with new materials and experiences.

My Project

Our school recently received some INCREDIBLE news! We are becoming a STEM Magnet Elementary Program based in Creative Sciences and Arts in the 2018-2019 school year! I cannot wait to bring these experiences into my Pre-K classroom! I would love to set up a new center based on engineering and technology, including circuits and the basics of coding.

Early childhood education needs STEM too!

Many of these students will just be beginning their educational journey, and need to experience the newest technology and materials in a hands-on way!

The Squishy Circuits Deluxe Kit combines the basic lessons of opening and closing circuits with the familiarity of play dough! The students will manipulate the circuits to light their projects. Once they establish a basic understanding of circuitry, students can progress into creating their own circuits with the batteries, motors, and alligator clips also included in this project. The Code-a-Pillar and Code & Go Robot Mouse are both hands-on, child friendly coding machines that can introduce the complex world of coding through play! The children will be able to create paths for their animals to travel along using simple codings techniques. These skills will be essential to their success in our increasingly technological world!
