Sunday JAM * Jesus And Me
I would like to take a moment to introduce myself. I am Jamie Winklepleck. I will be the Lead for Sunday JAM. I have been working with children in early education specifically, Special Education for over 15 years. I attended Southeast Tech for Early Childhood Development and find great joy in finding ways for children to engage in their learning through play and their own genuine curiosity. I plan to use my experience and education to create lessons that allow children to move and engage in their learning as we work our way through stories of the Bible.  

 I am so excited to get started with JAM this year, each class has fun interactive learning opportunities for all ages. From sensory and movement to music and stories! Studies show that children learn best through play and we will be doing just that! Sunday JAM is designed to allow children to play and engage in their learning through hands on activities that will reach each learning style. Watch the bulletin for upcoming class notes. * If you have interest in helping PLEASE also sign up!

Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain's pathways, which lead to the child's ability to complete more complex learning tasks. Sensory play supports language development, cognitive growth, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving skills, and social interaction.  

Kinesthetic learning or tactile learning is a learning style in which learning takes place by the students carrying out physical activities, rather than listening to a lecture or watching demonstrations. 

The Linguistic Learner: The verbal style involves both the written and spoken word. 

Naturalistic learner is very much like a kinesthetic learner in many ways. They love to be able to touch, feel, hold, and do. 

Musical-Rhythmic learners are natural born musicians. They tend to think in sounds and rhythmic patterns instead of words or pictures. 

The Visual or Spatial Learner  If you use the visual style, you prefer using images, pictures, colors, and maps to organize information and communicate with others.
