Welcome to Paula's Preschool and Kindergarten! My class blog is the place I share information about some of the fun learning activities we are doing at school. I hope to provide parents with insight into what we are doing, and why, and to share ideas with other early childhood educators. Please don't use the photos or text of this blog without permission, but please do use any ideas you find useful. Thank you for stopping by!
My Teaching Philosophy
Young children are eager to engage with the world around them, and they learn from all the experiences they encounter. They are avid learners, constantly developing mentally, physically, emotionally and socially. Children need and deserve our respect, and must in turn be taught to respect others and the world around them. When we engage children in rich experiences and make learning joyful, they learn to love learning, and become lifelong learners. To this end we must provide learning materials and experiences that are engaging and meaningful to the child. Those materials must be varied, and may include books, computers and electronic devices, hands on experiences, toys, games, and time in natural environments.
