Which parking spot has your name on it? The children were invited to find out as they headed over to our parking lot name game throughout the morning!
The next time you find yourself saying "I wish I had a play ground like that?" Read this!
"Play gives children the chance to practice what they are learning." This quote by Fred Rogers is one that I have always enjoyed and strive to keep in mind as I plan for each day in my classroom.
With spring upon us, I was chomping at the bit to start exploring bugs, flowers, gardening - you know - all that springy stuff but my students had a different idea in mind. They wanted to do a Skeleton Day! So smack in the middle of our first week of spring, we stopped to explore the skeletons inside our bodies.
Every morning after the children come to preschool, we settle into our morning group time and talk about the weather. It's been interesting how much learning takes place and how much growth and development I have seem stem from this simple process of documenting and talking about the weather.
I love offering the children everyday, simple things, like Qtips, to design and create with. I always hope that by supplying the children common household products, they might even be inspired to try the activities at home.
I am a teacher who is always learning and growing so as you read my blog, you will see that I am also always changing my approach towards teaching based upon what I believe my students need from me and what I am currently learning about best practices in early childhood education. I believe the best learning takes place through meaningful play and exploration so I fill my small classroom environment with opportunities for the children to explore new and interesting processes and materials every single day.
