My students need acrylic paint paint, multi-media paper, and books from their favorite author Eric Carle.
My children start their day jumping in excitement and anticipation, they love school because their classroom is filled with learning that interests them. My preschoolers are beginning their educational journey focusing on play, arts and social emotional learning. They grow and change so quickly in such short periods of time. The students are mixed age 3-5 and mixed abilities, with special education students and typical developing children.
We really focus on social emotional learning and creating a classroom community where the children lead their learning.
The children's interests determine the curriculum and our students are engaged and involved in their learning. The children prove every day that the job of children is to play, and through that play they learn and grow to unimaginable lengths.
Children will be able to use Eric Carle books as a resource for many different skills. They are learning about authorship and what it means to be an author themselves. They are enthusiastic about creating their own stories and find so much joy in Eric Carle's books and in the videos they watch of him explaining his work. The Nonsense Book by Eric Carle gives children the freedom to use their imagination. The ABC book will be used to inspire kids to make their own colorful classroom alphabet.
The children have requested to "paint a book" and will use the acrylic paints and paper to make their ideas a reality.
Children have been using computer paper stapled together with markers. But this project will elevate their confidence and give even more value to their work and ideas. The very empowerment Eric Carle sights as an inspiration to his own work.
We will also use the paints and paper to create collage work that children can use to express themselves, both creatively and emotionally. The children will use the arts to explore materials and skills and emotions and interests.
We'll use the variety of Eric Carle books to explore rhymes, counting, letter identification, and a general love of stories that cannot be taught, but has to be experienced.
