My Students

I have a great group of children. They are so inquisitive and love to play and learn. They are very interested in shapes and space. They love to look at things in different ways. I have 14 children in my preschool class. Our school is a great school. It has students from pre-k to 8th grade. Last school year is the first year we have had full day Preschool. It is a close community always willing to lend a hand.

I recently completed child contracts with my preschoolers and they have some great ideas about what we should learn about this year.

They want to learn about the sun, cheetahs, animals in our forests and people in our community to name a few. I am so excited to start researching, documenting and exploring these topics with them.

My Project

We are trying to get more kid friendly technology into our preschool classroom. My children this year are very interested in observing and documenting what is around them and the VTech cameras will be a great start to this goal. One of the goals I have for the children is for them to plan and create an artistic creation through photographs. A second goal is to participate in a shared writing experience, where the end product is a classroom book. Each child will contribute information and photographs to complete our book.

The first project we want to work on this year is to get to know our school community better.

Our plan is to come up with 3 interview questions and to have each child and his family interview a staff member in our school. Part of this plan will be for the child to photograph the staff member he chooses. We will then put all of our data together to create a school book.
