As a home educator, I enjoyed teaching Early Childhood development.  I researched Frederick Frobel, the history of kindergarten, Frank Lloyd Wright,  and various curriculum.  I have experience working with young learners and helping them develop skills.  I had the opportunity visit several interactive exhibits and volunteered for an after school zoological program.  I served on their board for a few years.   Teaching science, math, reading, culture, and writing through play, exploration, and imagination is my passion.  I discovered that empowerment, fine motors, cognitive, social, communicative, physical, and sensory skills are developed through kinesthetic-tactile learning.  
A weekly supply list will be given each week: Week 1 - Making ABC's,1-2-3, and Shapes with Playdough plastic container for storage, flour, cream of tartar, salt, vegetable oil, water, food color, 2 bowls, spoon, tooth picks, rolling pin, cookie cutter, mat or board, safe knife, spoon, and fork( gluten free option: salt, corn starch, water, food coloring or plant based food coloring) Week 2 - Using Sounds & Touch to Make Patterns & Homemade Instruments beads, beans, buttons or rice, rubber bands, plastic Easter egg, non-toxic glue, markers, construction paper, can, empty plastic bottle Week 3 - Playtime with Sand, Rice, or Cornmeal -Prewriting Exercises & Hand-Eye Coordination Skills dish pan or plastic tray, sand, cornmeal, rice, or flour, kid-size tongs, small sieve or sand shovel, ten small items to bury Week 4 - Painting & More Painting non-toxic finger paint, lined paper, construction paper, finger paint, Q-tips(generic brand), wipes or paper towel
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Health and safety are priorities in these labs.  I try to be as inclusive as possible.  As a mother and patient, I am familiar with allergens and sensitivities.   Playdough contains known food allergens such as food color and gluten.  In Week 3, we use sand, rice, flour, or cornmeal and non-toxic glue which can directly or indirectly contain allergens.   In Week 4, we will use non-toxic finger paint that contains colors.  Please understand that allergies and sensitivities are subject to a case by case situation.  Food vendors can change production and facilities.  Please check with your health care provider, allergen support group, and read product labels thoroughly to see if these materials are suitable for your learner.  Also note there is a gluten free dough recipe available.  Also, we will be using warm water, scissors, sand, and small items in class.  Parental supervision is mandatory.
