All children learn best when they are provided a positive, caring, and supportive learning environment. Children learn best through hands on experiences that use all 5 senses and this is how we teach. We take into account the: Environmental qualities of our environment such as sound, light, temperature, and design. Emotional qualities of our environment such as motivation, persistence, quality, and structure. Sociological qualities of our environment such as self, pair, peers/team, adult and varied. Physical qualities of our environment such as perceptual, intake, time, and mobility. Psychological qualities of our environment such as global analytic, hemispheric, and impulsive/reflective. We also take some of our strategies from the emotional intelligences theory when setting up our space and developing lesson plans. We plan and implement this way because as we all know all children learn differently and are unique... they don't fit into a box of sameness, and they shouldnt have to. That is why when we teach and create with children we foster and value each childs uniqueness and differences. Curriculum: Adventures in Learning has a preschool curriculum developed by Shauna and her years (15 years) experience as an Elementary teacher, preschool teacher, and Head Start teacher as well as her collaborations with other teachers in the valley. We all want our children to succeed, to love school and to love learning..... at Adventures we do this by making learning and school fun and engaging. We want to prepare children for school but not create frustration and burn out. All of these things were in the forefront of our minds while creating our curriculum. For example: We will base our reading/phonics around Zoo Phonics. "Zoo-phonics is a well-balanced curriculum and methodology spanning the entire language arts spectrum by teaching children systematic phonics, as well as rich literature and language development. Body movements hold the child's attention and cement the letter to the sound. Children manipulate the alphabet with their eyes, ears, and mouth, and bodies. Because the curriculum is so playful, children want to learn and enjoy it. The "26 Animal Friends" help children remember the shapes and sounds of the letters (allie alligator, bubba bear, catina cat, etc.). Instead of looking at an abstract symbol, they see a familiar animal, which keep students excited and focused in the classroom." My Oldest daughter, Arianna had many speech issues entering kindergarten this last year and struggled immensely with reading.. but Zoo Phonics helped her so much! She would excitedly come home and tell me of the new character they learned for that week! I want this for YOUR children, this excitement, this joy and love for learning! This is why I chose Zoo Phonics for the basis of my reading/phonics curriculum!
