    I loved this project, because I think it is something that keeps on giving as time moves forward. An extremely interesting, and unique way to express oneself, and think about self-development as an educator. One way to utilize this book is that you could have your own students create their own storybook on themselves the first week of class. The place where you were born, where you live, siblings, likes, dislikes, personality, family members, pets, drawing, pictures, and words, anything that would provide clues about yourself. A very team building exercise for students that are just getting to know one another where they learn about each, and every one of their classmate’s in an open forum.…

    The schools I have been on placement both have strong links with the communities they provide for and I have been lucky enough to work with parent helpers as well as being given the opportunity to teach my Year 2 class and their parents on a science morning. Having planned lots of investigation the parents and children all enjoyed the experience. Parents like to be in involved in their children’s learning and to help within class or on trips. I feel as a teacher this is often something that is underutilised and feel that having parents that are involved only encourage the children to see their learning positively. I aim to give children as many positive experiences and opportunities to personalise their own learning.…

    As far back as I can remember teaching young children has always been a passion of mine. I remember going with my mom to her school where she taught Pre- K on my days off of school and being so excited to engage and work with the students. Watching them learn new things and seeing how excited they get when they are able to do something helped me to realize that I wanted to be the person to help them achieve their goals.

Young children seem to have a passion to explore their surroundings and are able to look at different situations with an open mind.…

    For example, if the theme is musical instruments teachers can ask parents to bring in different recyclable objects for students to make their own instruments. This can also be a great opportunity for a teacher to ask for parent volunteers who play instruments to come to the class and play a few songs for the students. This is also fostering an opportunity for parents to build on, and ask questions about what their child is learning at school. Parents can also see how their child grew and progressed through the school year as they look back at all the pictures. In addition, it is a great way for parents to thank teachers for all their hard work as they post.…
