My Students

"The goal of Early Childhood Education should be to activate the child's own natural desire to learn." Maria Montessori.

Discoveries are made and light bulbs are lit every day in the early childhood classroom.

They make meaning of new information and find understanding through a multi-sensory approach to learning. My children are an active group of energetic, funny, and eager to learn children. Our classroom is an Early Childhood Special Education classroom where all the students are learning and developing at their own pace. I love providing them with different avenues to explore with new materials.

In the early childhood classroom, play and the opportunity to express their creativity, explore their environment and to use realia in their play is an essential part to their growth and development. Through this the students learn and grow in not only their early academics but also their social skills, and learn how to follow different routines. It is amazing to watch my little learners explore and discover new things in the classroom while they play!

My Project

A preschool classroom is a bustling environment full of play based learning. Children learn by exploring their environment and the objects within it. It is important to ensure that in the classroom we have many different interest areas for the children to travel to to try different activities.

"Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning" - Fred Rogers.

There is no better interest area to see this in than the dramatic play area in a classroom. Children are constantly observing their surroundings and love to imitate what they see at home. With the help of a dollhouse and items to use with it the children will create and act of familiar scenarios. It will help them expand their knowledge about their world and express themselves!
