From Foot to Shoes: Kindergartners', Families' and Teachers' Perceptions of the Project Approach
Yuen, Lai Ha Freda
Early Childhood Education Journal, v37 n1 p23-33 Aug 2009
Working within the context of a school improvement project, a kindergarten moved from its use of a theme approach in the classroom to a project-based learning approach in which the children were asked to seek relevant information and materials based on their daily interests and exploration. The children were encouraged to integrate drawing and writing daily newsletters to communicate to their parents what they need and how their parents could help them. This paper is presented in two parts. The first part is a description of how a project on shoes undertaken by a kindergarten class might unfold. The second part discusses the parents' and teachers' reflections on the project.
