Our world wide classroom is hosting a blog hop. This week's theme is what is your educational style?
As a former teacher I was constantly learning and reading about different philosophies of education and different methods of teaching. Over the years I've learned that there is no perfect method. One idea may work with one child, but may have no effect on another. I've also learned that different methods work better for different age groups. That is why I try to incorporate different methods in my activities with Little Sweets. I do lean more towards a montessori philosophy because I have found that these types of activities are most engaging and meaningful to Little Sweets. As Little Sweets gets older I hope to incoporate more of a Reggio Emilia approach and do more project based learning activities.
What about you? What is your style?
