Construction Update #7

This is a short video of Kathy Burke of Gastinger, Walker, Harden, Architects, visit to SVN Pre-k. Ms. Burke really extended the children's learning about architects, measuring, planning, and building. I think we have some future architects in the classroom!

Construction Update #6



Last week we used our learning about shapes and construction to create blueprints. To help us with our blueprints we called in the experts. On Tuesday our 7th and 8th grade friends, who recently won awards for their work in the Crayons to CAD program, helped us. The Crayons to CAD program launches students into understanding the built environment as they construct and plan their own structures. On Wednesday we got a visit from Kathy Burke, an architect from Gastinger, Walker, Harden Architects. Ms. Burke brought many examples of the work her firm has done and answered the kids questions about blueprints and her profession.

Male Teachers

This is a short video explaining the benefits of male teachers in early childhood classrooms. (birth-3rd grade). I think this is a great tool for future male teachers who are needed in the field of early childhood education.

Este es un video corto que explica los beneficios de los maestros en las aulas de la primera infancia. Creo que esta es una gran herramienta para los futuros profesores que se necesitan en el ámbito de la educación infantil.

Measuring Video

This is a short video I shot while the kids were exploring tape measures last week. I think that you can really see their excitement of measuring with tools.

Este es un breve video que grabó mientras los niños estaban estudiando medidas cinta la semana pasada. Creo que usted puede realmente ver su emoción de medir con herramientas.

Today we explored blueprints as a group. We discussed the different shapes that an architect uses to create blueprints. Later in the day the kids used shapes to practice making their own blueprint.

Hoy hemos explorado planos como grupo. Hablamos sobre las diferentes formas que un arquitecto utiliza para crear planos. Más adelante en el día los niños utilizan las formas de practicar haciendo su propio plan.

Construction Update: 4




This week we began to turn our house area into a construction office and site. We went and visited Ms. King's and Mis. Izette's offices to see what we are going to need to put in our office. We also started to explore tape measures this week. The kids had a great time comparing how big things were using the tape measures.

Esta semana empezamos a dirigir nuestra casa en un área de oficina de construcción y el sitio. Fuimos y visitó la Sra. King y Mis. Izette oficinas para ver lo que vamos a necesitar para poner en nuestra oficina. También comenzó a estudiar las medidas de cinta de esta semana. Los niños la pasaron muy bien la comparación de cómo eran las cosas grandes con la cinta métrica.

Last week we visited the construction site across the street from our school. The workers were nice and showed us how their machines work. We also continued to work with different forms of measurement by using rulers, yarn, cubes, and paper clips. The kids sorted nails and screws with Ms. Kathy.
