We do a lesson once a week & it’s been so helpful as a teacher mom! Very easy to use and prep is minimal and supplies aren’t too complicated!
Whether you have time to do the projects or not (which don’t take a lot of time anyway). All of the content/questions/examples leading up to the projects in And of itself is great content for your little one. It gives me a base to jump off of and teach concepts to my 3 yr old that I otherwise would not have done.
We love this book. It really challenges my kids to use their imagination and creativity. Testing and tweaking their creations are such valuable teaching moments. I appreciate the examples because when my daughter is really stuck I can show here these to get some ideas flowing.
This is a nice intro to Science for my Pre-K daughter. We haven't started on it yet because I don't think she's ready but just from looking at the material I think she will love its simplicity, bright colors and interactive activities.
This is a nice addition to the PreK kit. My boys love anything related to science and this is no exception.
