John Sweeney Projects

Projects evolve based on the children's interests, where our educators act as co-learners. Projects are documented in three phases; generating ideas by making a plan, implementing the plan and reflecting on the learning.

Preschool 2 Completed: Summer 2016 RECEs: Janeth, Fiona, Simone Objectives: To expant on our current knowledge of drums, and learn what other objects can be used as drums.                       We had many questions that we wanted to learn more on about drums. Creating sounds out of all sorts of things was heard many times throughtout the day. The children enjoyed learning from our special guests; Jacob's dad Andres, and batman who played the drums as we sang along. Click here to read the complete documentation on our project
