Early childhood gets crafty

This week’s project was to make a paper-plate portrait of themselves. Students start this project by gathering materials to mather their hair color, eye color, as well as blending colors to match their skin tone.

Britney Lacarte’s early childhood class allows students to learn about many important factors of child development and education. The course covers topics from Zaner-Bloser handwriting to the psychological development within young age groups. This class prepares students to become Department of Children and Families (DCF) certified and gives them the opportunity to continue into working in the Little Patriots classroom next year. The extensive topics covered within the class lead to a variety of different activities. Despite how much information is given throughout the course, students regularly create projects usually done with children in a preschool setting. Wednesday, Oct. 28 was dedicated to self portraits.
