The VPK students are learning to be leaders and work/play together as a team. They are recognizing their letters and the sounds they make. Each morning the students are asked to log an entry into their journal that pertains to the theme the teacher gives them. Today's theme was "Good Habits". The VPK students have to draw a picture and then explain how their picture is showing "Good Habits". Drawing helps children to organize their ideas thereby constructing meaning from their experiences. Since children in their early years have little vocabulary, drawing is a useful tool that teachers use to enhance their communication skills. By being able to draw their experiences then verbally explain their drawing confidence is also built. Some of the students are already writing their names! It is so wonderful to see them grow day to day in knowledge and learning.
