I am an Early Childhood Teacher in Sydney, NSW. I am trained as a K-6 teacher and I’m currently studying a Graduate Diploma in Early Intervention 0 -5 Settings. I am passionate about authentic learning experiences for young children that help to develop a love of learning. I blog about teaching & learning and all of the experiences that go along with it.
I was introduced to the term ‘Crunchy Eyebrows’ by a colleague, @georgiac . She described crunchy eyebrows as the face a learner makes when they are trying to understand a new concept. I have since tried really hard to create learning experiences in my classroom that encourage lots of crunchy eyebrows and allow learners to really think about what they are learning, not just be passive consumers of the knowledge.
Here I will blog about my experiences with crunchy eyebrows and the lessons I set up to create them. I’ll also talk about lots of other fun things I’m doing in my classroom along the way!
