Alex Green Elementary’s Pre-K students recently took to the runway, showcasing what they learned during their clothing study in front of their family, friends and teachers.

Investigations Nurture Curiousity

In Pre-K, students learn through study investigations. The investigations can include delving into diverse topics such as trees or buildings or, as witnessed at Alex Green, clothing. These investigation practices nurture curiosity, foster discovery, and hone critical thinking skills through collaborative play. student dressed up for fashion show

At Alex Green, the clothing study had Pre-K students explore and investigate clothing through the different materials it is made from and the various types of clothing people wear. Throughout the study, students read stories, created artwork, explored different materials and textiles, and dressed up in different clothing. At the end of this study, Pre-K students celebrated with a fashion show.

“It was so great to see the outfits students chose to wear and exciting to watch them model their garments on the red carpet. The fashion show supports social-emotional learning by supporting confidence and self-awareness.

Plus, it provides an opportunity to reflect the different cultures at our school and community,” said Dr. Sarah Iriogbe-Efionayi, Pre-K Teacher at Alex Green Elementary.

Parents also enjoyed seeing their child model their outfits, including Pre-K parent Chityka Fentress who said her daughter “has been into fashion for a long time and was so excited and happy to be in today’s fashion show. She even went to bed early for the first time.”

Fentress also enjoys her child’s Pre-K program, “I love my child’s Pre-K program. There are wonderful teachers and  kids in her class; she tells me she loves it every time she comes home from school.”

Alex Green and Metro School’s Pre-K program embrace the creativity and individuality of every student. Metro School's Pre-K program offers a fun, rigorous, engaging, and nurturing environment. Our diverse learning classrooms are a stepping stone to a lifetime of learning for  Davidson County's young students.
