STEAM- Everyday Science and STEAM Infants & Toddlers are Marvelous Mathematicians February 12, 2020
S.T.E.A.M. -Everyday Science Young children are natural scientists. They observe, ask questions, predict, and test out theories all day long. This workshop will give providers lots of ideas on how to set up the environment to foster scientific thinking. Participants will learn engaging ways to get children observing, questioning, and investigating using materials that are often found in childcare settings. We will use the Vermont Early Learning Standards (VELS) as a framework for developing hands-on fun science activities for your youngest learners. (NOTE: Attend both March 11 & April 8 workshops and complete the practice component in between the two sessions to earn 6 hours of professional development.) S.T.E.A.M. Infants & Toddlers are Marvelous Mathematicians We know that children develop mathematical concepts and skills very early in life. This workshop will explore how to set up a developmentally appropriate learning environment and what types of math materials are safe even for infants! We will explore how adults can use intentional ‘math talk’ and teachable moments to create math learning experience for infants and toddlers as they explore and discover the world around them. We will look closely at ways to integrate math into daily events, as well as explore ways to create engaging activities to meet the needs of all abilities in your care.
