Why teach Pre-K?

Because, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phillipians 4:13

Egg Carton Jellyfish-simple project

Hello All, This first year teaching Kindergarten has been amazing! I love it more and more each day. This month we are studying the ocean. We are using each day to study a different creature that the children want to learn about. We start by watching a youtube video and completing a KWL (know, want to know, learned) chart and a Can, have are chart. Once we record our information in our science notebook we draw, paint, create each creature. Today we had fun making an egg carton jellyfish. This was so simple yet fun. It took some fine motor skills and a few supplies but the kids were having so much fun swimming their jellyfish throughout the room, they even took a little time to "sting" each other. Not maliciously of course! It was great fun, I hope you find time to make some of your own!

  1. Truly teaching in a kindergarten is just an amazing experience. You know I also worked in a famous Phoenix preschool, and there I always tried different creatures to teach students in excited way. Kid’s really enjoyed in my class.
