Project Planning: Brainstorming Ideas
In the last two months, many students in early childhood settings are participating in remote learning through ClassDojo during this lockdown due to COVID-19. ClassDojo makes it possible for educators, students, and caretakers/parents to connect through the app for learning, communication, and sharing resources. More importantly, ClassDojo makes it possible for students to remain in contact with each other. For my week two assignment, I observed my five-year-old nephew in a class activity through ClassDojo. Since my nephew does not live with me, I asked my sister to use the FaceTime app to connect with him. Over the last few days, I have kept connecting with my nephew with his remote learning. I have observed many of the students have a great interest in making all kinds of shapes using various forms of arts and craft materials. Therefore, my suggested project topic is below.
Topic: Building a car with various forms of arts and crafts materials
Grade Level: Kindergarten
Prior Knowledge: Children, by nature, are curious and eagerly exploring their environments and materials. They are always figuring different ways of making things work to their advantage. Furthermore, children are driven by their interests and means of creative expression, “they learn how to express their feelings through art, drama, and storytelling” (Branscombe et al., 2014, p. 151). Kindergarten children are familiar with using various means of art materials; paper, markers, paint, glue, and scissors to create and construct desired art projects.
