Sandcastles on the Shoreline: Building Relationships with Children and Families in ECE Settings

This e-portfolio served as the graduating project for my Master’s in Early Childhood Education through UBC (2021). Using the metaphor of sandcastles on the shoreline, I describe and illustrate various ways that early years teachers can build relationships with the students and families they have the privilege of working with.

I created this document for EC&I 832, a graduate course through the University of Regina focusing on Digital Citizenship and Media Literacy. The resource features a variety of lessons that teach Digital Citizenship and Media Literacy concepts to young children through a hands-on, play-based approach.

Building Metalinguistic Awareness in Young Children Using Children’s Literature

I created these teaching songs for a course on Elementary Physical Education. The songs are a fun and musical way to help your students remember the types of, and certain steps to, the Fundamental Movement Skills.

Grade 2 ELA Unit Plan (Environmental Education)

This is a Grade 2 English Language Arts unit I created that infuses Environmental Education, which I created for ESCI 302. It focuses on the development of environment appreciation and awareness while building the basic ELA skills of reading, writing, spelling, listening, speaking, and comprehension. It satisfies the Compose and Create #2 outcome from the Saskatchewan curriculum and, therefore, focuses on students expressing their learning through a vast range of mediums.
