Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by doing hands-on projects & collaborating with peers to find answers or to solves the given problem. Any interesting thing in daily life could become the students’ topic of study. In the process, students will discuss with peers, works on hands-on crafts, and present their project in which they will be working on their social skills, learning about the properties of different materials, and practice their communication skills.
According to the NAEYC, social curriculum should be the primary curriculum in early childhood education. Each month, our teachers discuss a social/emotional goal and give examples of character traits through puppet shows and stories. At the end of the month, our teachers pick a child who demonstrated each character trait to be the star of the month.
