My Students

My 18 pre-kindergarteners are eager students who enjoy learning about their immediate surroundings as well as exploring materials presented to them through art and creative expression activities.

During the upcoming months, the children will begin to learn about lights and various light sources.

Throughout the Light unit of study, the children will be able to identify and note that there are many types of lights in our homes and our cities. They will be able to gain an in depth understanding that light helps us see and stay warm, that light helps plants grow, and when there is little or no light it is dark. They will also be introduced to vocabulary such as: light, visible light, ultraviolet (UV) light, phosphors, fluoresce and glow.

My Project

In conjunction with the NYC Pre-K For All: Light Unit of Study, my young students will be able to touch and examine a telescope, magnifying glass, eyeglasses, flashlights, use fluorescent paints, translucent-colored papers, cameras, black construction paper, and black lights to explore ultraviolet light. They will able to use the requested fluorescent art materials to experiment with reflective materials all around the classroom. By utilizing black light with the requested florescent paint and chalks students will learn that the black light is a special light that emits light we can see as well as light we cannot see called Ultraviolet light.

By providing my young students with hands-on experiences throughout this Light Unit of study, they will be able to use florescent paint, pastel chalks, water colors and glow sticks to learn about ultraviolet​ lights while gaining an understanding of light concepts and various light sources.

Students will also be able to compare fluorescent and tempera paints to note the difference when both are illuminated by black light while the classroom windows are covered with butcher paper.
