Welcome to Head Start!

Hi! My name is Wendy Blackman and I have been teaching for 10 years. I graduated from Buena Vista University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with an Early Childhood Endorsement. We use the Teaching Strategies Assessment Tool in our classroom, where we take written observations on each of the children. It is a list of 38 objectives broken down into 4 learning areas: Social/Emotionl, Physical, Cognitive, and Language. Our classroom is very language based, focusing on expressing our wants and needs, social skills, and play skills. We also introduce many pre-academic skills, such as identifying colors, shapes, counting, numbers, letters, etc., in order to ready your child for kindergarten. You can contact me at school at 457-5723 or you can e-mail me at Wendy.Blackman@ops.org.
