My Students

Welcome to the Ladybug Classroom... the spot for eighteen energetic, loving, and delightful Pre-Kinders plus two teachers who just love them bunches! Together we form a school family that works together to grow and develop through play-based learning and teaching - the way young children learn best.

Although it looks like we’re just playing, my little learners are engaging in structured activities to teach specific skills and knowledge.

Through participation in these positive play-based learning experiences, my children develop their ability to get along with others, learn cognitive and language strategies, and acquire the building blocks for a strong foundation for school success. Such a playful approach to learning builds on my children’s interests and responds to their ideas for play while making happier people who continue to love playing and learning.

My Project

STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) is an important part of the Pre-K curriculum because it pervades in every part of our lives. It provides many benefits to the young child through an open-ended curious approach while teaching them to think outside the box , collaborate, and work toward a solution. My project "Full STEAM Ahead With STEM" provides hands-on STEM learning materials that encourage problem solving and perseverance as well as foster inquiring minds. The children use their own ideas to create, build, and design using various materials. For example, the children can put together their own spectacular, spinning show using the Turn & Learn Magnetic Gears. They can build, test and reconfigure a variety of marble pathways using the Create-A-Path Magnetic Center or design their own roller coaster using the Engineer-A-Coaster Activity kit.

During these hands-on and minds-on experiences with STEM, the children develop a passion for it so that they one day may pursue a job in the STEM field.

With intentional teacher support and challenge cards, these developmental materials spark new ideas and challenge deeper thinking. Please support my project "Full STEAM Ahead With STEM" and give my students hands-on learning STEM experiences that will impact the rest of their lives.
