Self-Expression in Preschool As children sharpen their verbal skills and become more comfortable with their peers, they feel increasingly capable of expressing their feelings and concerns. The preschool art center is bustling with activity this morning. After tearing strips of colored construction paper into lots of pieces in a self-initiated activity, Addison, a young 3-year-old, happily piles them all in a box on the table. Eyes wide open, she assesses her work, then smiles at her teacher and says, "I did a good job. The box is all full up!" Preschoolers enjoy the challenges of experimenting with a wide variety of media and tools, using them to express their feelings, ideas, and wishes while sharpening their basic skills. For instance, Addison is fascinated to discover that she can control the direction of her paper tears with her fingers. Clearly feeling joyful about her new found success, she uses her emerging verbal abilities to let her teacher know about her feelings of pride.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
