Pre-Service Teachers Host Game Night at Local Elementary School for Texas Public Schools Week

March 06, 2013

Texas Public Schools Week

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Pre-service teachers enrolled in Dr. Jana Sander’s Early Childhood Education class, “The Young Child, Family & Community,” hosted a fun evening of games and crafts for  students of George Evans Elementary School and their parents on March 4 during Texas Public Schools Week.

“The University students realized that learning doesn't have to be gained in a formal or traditional style,” said Sanders, Professor of Education. “Teaching can be conducted through the enjoyment of games.”

The event featured a variety of activities including how to make a Texas hat, square/line dancing, and bowling for Texas. The activities were planned to help the students in Dr. Sander’s class learn how to develop family-oriented activities and encourage families to become more engaged in their child’s education through exciting activities.
