Oh joy ! I just got reassigned to a Self Contained Kindergarten. Now that's a mouthful and a handful. The children range from ADD, ADHD to Autistic, ED(Emotionally Disturbed) and Learning Disabled. Everyday is a new beginning with these shining stars. They're amazingly curious and full of wonder. This world is a strange place and these little darlings are just beginning to find their place in it. My stars are hard working and full of energy. Some of them are on medication to control their impulsive behavior and outbursts. All of them hold the keys to my heart.
Benjamin Franklin said "Tell me and I may forget, teach me and I may remember,Involve me and I'll learn." My children have sensory issues and are learning to use their senses. They will use the paper crimpers to create different textures on various types of paper. They will use the different glues on the varied types of materials and learn about bonding agents. The circular cutter will facilitate cutting in circular patterns. We'll use the laminating pouches to display and preserve their projects. These items will help the babies deal with their sensory issues. As they work with and get a feel for the textures they create, they will learn to handle everyday objects without aversion. The Art Of Science can become Science Through Art ...and what better way is there to learn ?
