My Students

Building sand castles, scooping water – it seems like play but think of all the learning that is transpiring!

We are in sunny southern California, the perfect place for outside fun and learning.

We are a diverse group of 4-6 year olds who come from different cultures, have different socio-economic backgrounds but all love to share, take turns and most of all LEARN!

My Project

With two sand and water tables, the kids will have so much fun playing that they won’t even know they are learning about math and science. They will be able to experiment with the properties of liquids and solids. They will be able to scoop, measure, and pour. They will engineer canals, play with water wheels and see what happens.

Not only is sand and water a great way to learn about math and science, they are a wonderful medium for stimulating imaginative play and the social side of a child's development.

While playing together, they will learn sharing, negotiating and turn taking. They will use their imaginations. The educational benefits are apparent, but the children will have fun while learning and developing new skills.
