    My Students

    My students are from a small rural school located on Kwaguil territory in Port Hardy, B.C. I teach a K/1/2 split. Many of my students come from challenging social and economic backgrounds. My students enjoy learning about gardening, nature and living creatures found in our local environment. They enjoy creative play and learning through building challenges, science experiments and art. One of their biggest challenges is learning how to work out rules for positive social interactions.

    How will this project impact them?

    A variety of indoor and outdoor creative play materials for Art, Science, S.T.E.A.M, Music, and Self Directed Play will help students to develop and learn positive social skills. The main goal that I would like to accomplish is providing students with an environment where they can make sense of their social world through playing with others. Fostering creative play inside and outside the classroom will help my students feel a sense of belonging in their social group ,as they learn how work out rules for positive social interactions. It will also help them to develop self regulation and grow to be independent leaners. Having strong social skills will help them to become successful learners throughout their educational career.
