Hi ! My name is Barb Weishapl and I have been teaching for 35 years!! I graduated from the University of Nebraska at Omaha with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with a specialization in Early Childhood Education. 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 (402)457-5723 or you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
