Description

Class Experience

I am a brain enthusiast! I studied Child Youth and Family studies in University, a program that is based in psychology. I became fascinated in the brain, and after my first psychology class completely changed my approach to studying and learning. I became particularly interested in learning better way to teach. My goal is to help children develop the skills they need to learn HOW to learn, instead of teaching them WHAT to learn. I have been teaching online since 2015, and I am a registered preschool teacher.
There will be occasional homework assignments like finishing jello brains, or coloring sheets.
Week 1: Tinfoil, muffin tins, jello mix (students can make the jello for homework)
Recommended: https://www.amazon.com/Help-Hungry-Henry-Deal-Anger/dp/3948298122/ (we will read it in class if there is time)
Week 2: Printout and pencil crayons (http://www.supercoloring.com/coloring-pages/human-brain-anatomy)
Week 3: Air dry clay/ playdough, paper, pencil
Week 4: Paper and a pencil
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
We will use Dr. Seigel's hand brain model: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-m2YcdMdFw&t=2s
