Research Studies /  In-Depth Learning

Children are innately curious and want to know how things work and why things happen. They naturally think like scientists as they strive to make sense of the world around them. Teachers can encourage their scientific thinking and explorations by integrating investigations guided by children's interests. They seek to understand the big world around them by exploring through their senses, hearing, touching, smelling, seeing and tasting. It is vital for the teachers to plan hands-on experiences, observe their play, and ask open-ended questions throughout the investigation. It's the process of science learning that really counts with young children. A quality study MUST include the following process skills: Observing, Classifying, Communicating, Measuring, Predicting, and Inferring. 

One of the greatest resources teachers have is each other. Collaboration and sharing has proven to contribute to our success, development and growth.  Such growth can be stunted by isolation and holding onto inhibitors.  Growth depends on having the professional courage to believe and invest in yourself enough to breakthrough a comfort zone while learning newer and better ways of benefiting children as they learn and grow.  Until this happens, the students we care for and teach can only grow as far as we have grown ourselves.  We owe it to ourselves and our students to never stop growing.
