Teaching Science to Kindergarten in a Short Time Frame | Posted in Early Childhood

Definitely start integrating science into everything else you do! That could mean a weather conversation during your morning meeting, reading a science content filled story during your read aloud time, having them write about a science topic, etc. Any time you can double up subjects, definitely take advantage of those opportunities!

Payton, I really like your idea of group work and discussion in the classroom. This form of teaching should be implemented in every grade level. It is a positive way where students can learn from one another as they are collaborating together on a group project. Different roles are divided between the students in each group allowing students to depend on one another. Discussion, in my opinion, allows students to reflect on what they learned that day, provide opinions about the assignment, and possibly suggest what they want to learn more about. This process makes students become active learners! I can see my future classroom using these learning strategies.

My friend had this similar problem as she is also in Kindergarten. Like everyone else, I would try to integrate the lesson as much as possible with other subject. For example, during reading you can read a book about a certain topic (plants) and then during writing, have the students write about the book. The children can describe characteristics (have, need, and give) and you can create a brace map and add on to it.
