Let’s Talk, Read and Sing about STEM!
From birth, children are curious. You can build on that natural curiosity by developing their interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Use daily routines to build on skills and concepts in math and science.
By talking, reading, singing, playing, signing or using other ways to communicate—whatever works best for your infant, toddler or preschooler—you can help develop her STEM skills through play and exploration. Easy ways to promote young children's natural abilities as scientists and engineers is by encouraging them to document their observations by drawing, painting, or recording their voices describe what they are noticing; constructing towers with blocks or other objects; and talking about the changes in nature—like the weather!
Here is a set of early STEM resources for families and educators of young children entitled Let's Talk, Read and Sing about STEM!
These tip sheets provide fun, concrete resources and recommendations for families, caregivers, and infant, toddler, and preschool educators on easy ways to incorporate STEM concepts and vocabulary into everyday routines, and suggestions for activities to engage young children in STEM learning.
