This class is inspired by my professional and academic background as a Reggio-inspired Educator. It is designed to engage young children in diverse child-originated and teacher-framed learning experiences, while providing ongoing opportunities to share & socialize with peers. It is a class that upholds the image of the child as capable and competent, and intentionally invites mixed-age groupings (ages 4-6). I utilize Developmentally Appropriate Practices to offer learners opportunities to...
Students will develop an awareness of a variety topics while engaging in developmentally appropriate practices that support cognitive, social-emotional, speech & language and motor skills.
I am completing my Master's in Innovative Early Childhood Education, with an emphasis on the Reggio Emilia approach. I have 16 years experience as an educator, most recently four years as an Early Childhood Educator at a Reggio-inspired preschool and two years facilitating virtual classes. I am a Registered Yoga Teacher/ certified children's Yoga instructor with 6 years experience teaching Yoga, so I love incorporating Yoga practices such as poses and breathing exercises into my classes too.
I will sometimes offer learners the option of engaging in fun "homework" activities such as scavenger hunts, art projects and simple science experiments. These activities are optional.
* I’ll let participants know ahead of classes when we’ll be using these materials, but they are always welcome to bring any of these things to class. We’ll use them during some classes and for some optional "homework" activities.* Paper (any type of blank paper) writing tools (i.e. pencil, marker, crayon) loose parts (items from nature and/or from common household recyclables such as food packaging) play dough
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
*Available sections currently include Monday/Wednesday/Friday or Tuesday/Thursday options. Please see session dates and note the adjustment in length of weeks for the Tuesday/Thursday section. The majority of this class will be done seated, but there will some opportunities for children to stand and engage in gross motor movement activities such as "dance parties". I will give a heads up for these classes, please provide an area that is safe for your child to explore this type of movement.
