My Students

I teach Pre-K at a Title I school in Louisiana, my students are 4 years old and many of them are experiencing school for the first time! I love that my students are so enthusiastic about school and learning new things.

In this classroom we use play as the vehicle for learning.

The students love center time! This is where we do our best learning. We build social and emotional skills, use our brains to think critically, and our hands to create!

Developmentally appropriate Pre-K needs hands-on learning, so we need materials! Many students do not have much experience with true play-based learning, as most children do not play with manipulatives and tinkering toys at home. My students are ready to expand their knowledge with new materials and experiences.

My Project

Our school recently received some AMAZING news! We are becoming a STEM Magnet Elementary Program based in Creative Sciences and Arts in the 2018-2019 school year! I cannot wait to bring these experiences into my Pre-K classroom! I would love to set up a Makerspace based on tinkering, making, and engineering. A Makerspace is meant to encourage thinking processes and actions that scientists and engineers use!

The classroom environment is the third teacher!

If students are to learn how to think like scientists and engineers, their environment needs to stimulate these skills. Many of these students will just be beginning their educational journey, and need to experience the newest methods and materials in a hands-on way!

The Makedo Cardboard Construction Toolset and other tinkering tools and materials will allow the students to interact in our classroom's new Makerspace! These child friendly tools and screws will help students to learn the basics in taking things apart and putting them together in multiple ways. This project also requests many other tools and materials helpful in tinkering and engineering projects. When working on their projects, students can create things with their own hands using planning, problem solving, and evaluating outcomes. The more children practice these skills, the more secure they will feel when applying them during other STEM experiences!
