Welcome to KinderLab T3’s 2018-2019!
KinderLab’s are Fairy Tale themed with an emphasis on STEAM. Our intent is to monthly create a space where kindergartener’s will combine science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics through your students efforts to MAKE.
Our KinderLab will also be a space where 21st Century Skills of critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity are valued equally as knowledge.
We want to provide an environment of participatory learning where it is OK to make mistakes and where one is encouraged to learn at one's own pace.
This month our STEAM Fairy Tale challenge was based on the Three Little Pigs. Your student was asked to design a home that would not blow over (the Big Bad Wolf).
We’ve provided additional STEAM challenges for you to do at home, once a week, once a day, or however you would like to add STEAM into your home. The key behind these challenges is to remember that they probably won’t make the challenge work the first time and you need to encourage your student to persevere, learn from what doesn’t work, and remember that they may not know exactly how to make something work the first time but that they can learn from their mistakes!! You can apply this mindset to learning how to read, complete new math problems, or even ride their bike!
We hope you have as much fun with these STEAM challenges as we had in class today!
Keep creating, keep learning, keep growing!
