HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University education senior Amber Madere of Gonzales, dressed as Dorothy in “The Wizard of Oz,” guides young Emerson Acosta of the Southeastern Lab School in an activity designed to encourage higher order thinking skills. Each semester, Southeastern students taking the Early Childhood Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten Methods course create developmentally appropriate learning centers in order to demonstrate their skills in teaching pre-kindergarten and kindergarten aged students. The students present their learning centers and activities to local early childhood students, early childhood educators, and the Southeastern community. This semester over 40 children and many more educators, visitors, and current Southeastern students participated in Southeastern’s Early Childhood EXPO presentation.
