Creating Home School Connections
It's important that teachers and families work together to provide the best possible learning experiences for children.
Supporting Arts & Science Learning
Parents and caregivers play an important role in supporting early science and arts learning in their children.
This video demonstrates how to use open-ended questions to deepen children's understanding of concepts, build their vocabulary and extend their use of oral language.
Watch this video to learn about how using inquiry learning techniques encourage engagement when teaching young students about science concepts. This includes using appropriate materials, allowing time for exploration, asking predictive questions, using science-based vocabulary and reflecting on children's understanding.
This video highlights the value of wait time and provides tips for using high-level, probing questions to scaffold children’s learning.
The Teacher's Toolkit is expanding, so please check back for new materials about inquiry learning and other topics that support early childhood science and arts education.
