I teach a wonderful group of 4 and 5 year old pre-kindergarten students. They primarily come from low income homes. These children are smart and eager to learn. They come to school everyday ready to see what they will learn that day.
Their eyes light up with excitement whenever they learn something new.
My students love to be read to. They enjoy music and dancing and word play. They love exploring the world around them. My students will benefit from hands on opportunities.
These materials will give my students so many opportunities to learn different science concepts through hands on exploration and inquiry.
I have included items that will stimulate their senses.
There are items for them to use their sense of hearing to determine what is inside the capsules. They will explore magnets and textures. They will be able to explore motion and velocity.
There are many items for them to look and at and ask questions to learn more. There are items for them to explore animals and animal habitats. There will be a science exploration center for my students to create and explore and inquire. These manipulatives will truly enhance our science center.
My goal is to provide as many chances as possible for my students to grow as scientists. We are growing scientists, doctors, engineers and future programmers!
