Kindergartners are inquisitive and engaged learners. They love to learn! My kindergartners are eager to explore the world around them. They benefit from safe spaces and structure, predictability and security. Structure and clear expectations provide an ideal learning environment for young children.
My students are curious, engaged, and excited learners that crave new learning!
They are hands-on learners. Some of my students speak another language at home and several qualify for special education modifications.
Our school is a new school that is still building its curriculum and materials. We are a STEAM school, meaning we explore various scientific concepts through hands-on, integrated projects. My kindergartners are fully immersed in a scientific concept and topic throughout the school day.
Our students need the opportunity to have materials that they can construct and create motion structures. These materials will be used by their imagination and creativity, while other times it maybe more intense and structured with a certain goal.
The students will be challenged to problem solve, use critical thinking, and develop a wide range of skills.
These motion materials are designed to peek the student’s interest in building, creating, and understanding motion. We will be asking our students to create their own Rube Goldberg machines this year and the Create a Chain Reaction kit will be an excellent starting point for them. Out students also explore ramps and how balls and objects move on them. All these materials will help engage and motivate our students to learn the concepts of force and motion.
