Learning Science Concepts through Play | Posted in Early Childhood

I have been thinking a lot about young children and how curious these children are. They are full of questions..some can be investigated, some can not. These children need to be involved in experiences. That is where the questions begin. I am reminded of a quote "Play is children's work."

I am going to attach an article that certainly might provoke some wondering for teachers of young children.

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!

Gardening at school with young children | Posted in Early Childhood

This will be a great idea to do during the spring time, and maybe you can ask the school if your class can plant around the campus and make observation notebook based on how their plants are growing, and have also a visual picture drawn by them of every Friday since the day the planted the plant. This would be such an amazing for students and their reaction will be priceless.
