Kinders are eager to learn and are so excited about being at school! They are at the fun age where they benefit so much from hands on learning. These students come from a rural, low socioeconomic community in Kansas.
STEM activities have not only helped engage our students, but have really encouraged problem solving skills in our classrooms.
With technology playing such a huge role in children's lives today, we try to incorporate it into our classroom lessons to help motivate and make learning fun. We also try to incorporate as much peer interaction as possible so our students can improve their social skills as well.
This technology will be a great motivator for our students to work patiently with their peers. The children will be able to work on sharing as well as offer suggestions to one another on how to solve the puzzle. We love that the Puzzlets allow the students to problem solve in a fun, hands on manner!
Puzzlets are a great STEM activity for our Kinders to both work together with their peers as well as independently!
Over the last few years, our Kindergarten curriculum has grown tremendously when it comes to the academics. Having these puzzlets will allow our Kinders to explore and learn in a less structured, but more hands on way. The children love to work along side their peers and can help one another in a variety of ways!
