Snap, clap, wiggle, and giggle to the sounds of Mother Nature. Attendees learned how to use these activities to support STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) in your classroom in this edWeb.net webinar presented by the community for Early Childhood Learning Solutions.
Looking for a way to integrate STEM into your daily activities? Step into a fully functioning early childhood science laboratory. Attendees learned how to intrigue and motivate their PreK to second grade students to be super scientists.
Research continues to emphasize how important the first five years of a child’s life are for brain development. Music can be an enjoyable and easy way for educators to support the development of important structural changes, neurological processes, and cognitive skills during this very active time of brain development.
When children use challenging behavior, it is an opportunity to teach them how to become emotionally aware problem-solvers that can use healthy coping strategies in difficult moments.

Developing a conceptual understanding of numbers and how they work is critical for continued success in mathematics throughout a child’s academic career. Brian Mowry reviewed and discussed the knowledge and skills — in particular those related to verbal counting, enumeration, cardinality, and small number recognition — which develop in the preschool years and lay the foundation for good number sense.
Dr. Clarissa Willis offered strategies for teachers to assist their early learners with social interaction difficulties, communication challenges, and developing routines. Participants of the webinar then had the opportunity to identify how these strategies could be implemented in their own setting.
