Description: To ensure that they are meeting state early learning guidelines for science, preschool educators need fun, age-appropriate, and research-based ways to teach young children about scientific concepts. The basis for the PBS KIDS show Sid the Science Kid, this innovative teaching resource helps children ages 3¿5 investigate their everyday world and develop the basics of scientific thinking -- skills they¿ll apply across subject areas when they enter school. The book introduces a fun and engaging way to introduce science to young children. The collaborative work of cognitive researchers and preschool educators, this approach incorporates lessons learned from developmental research and classroom experience, provides age-appropriate introduction to key science practices, and supports a range of cognitive and social skills. PrePS¿ uses science to help children develop math skills, early literacy and language skills, and social and emotional sensitivity and makes the most of children¿s natural curiosity. PrePS¿ isn¿t a rigid curriculum that asks children to memorize facts: It¿s a flexible, hands-on approach that helps teachers build on what children do best -- actively explore their world. PrePS¿ encourages children¿s full participation, making learning a true partnership between adults and children, enhancing any curriculum, and gives teachers creative new ways to support science learning and reasoning within everyday routines and lessons. Because PrePS¿ is designed to energize teachers and tap in to their personal creativity, teachers who already use the PrePS¿ approach have reported an increase in professional satisfaction. The book provides ample guidance on how to work PrePS¿ into existing programs, with sample schedules designed for the preschool classroom and detailed sample activities and templates for lesson plans. Start young children on PrePS¿ today, and help them develop the critical thinking skills they¿ll need to succeed -- in science class, in other academic subjects, and in life.
