  • Preparing Parents for the Push for STEM Education |
    to think outside of the workbook page Children who are creative will be in the best position to solve problems using science technology engineering and math 2 Read broadly Gone are the days when reading fiction exclusively is the best way to prepare children for school Read non fiction about science technology engineering and math Two great resources for kids online are National Geographic Kids kids nationalgeogrpahic com and the Exploratorium exploratorium edu 3 Visit places where your children can become fascinated by STEM related phenomena and talk about things that fascinate them People learn best by having experiences and then making sense of them with a guide Visit your local observatory or aquarium but don t just visit Visit and talk with one another about your experience 4 Read and explore STEM topics that you are interested in Are you interested in the science of cooking Read about that Are you interested in the physics behind your favorite sport Read about that Developing and exploring your own interest is a natural way to build a family conversation about STEM topics 5 Finally see the science in their thinking When my oldest son was small our refrigerator was covered with magnets Rather than playing with the magnets the way they were intended he began taking the magnets and trying to stick them to other surfaces in the kitchen He tried to stick them to oven to the cabinets to the dishwasher to the trashcan I was so excited when I saw him do this I said Oh my You re conducting your first experiment In my zeal I explained the difference between conductors and insulators We tested the magnets together You probably don t know all of the science in the things that make your child curious but take time

  • Common Core State Standards for Math: How Parents Can Help Kids Prepare |
    why addition problems are true and how they know 1 3 4 You can help your child prepare for the common core by discussing what math means in addition to correct answers Have mathematical discussions Think about where math is found in your daily experience Use your daily experiences as opportunities to talk about math For example as you place cookies on a cookie sheet you might talk about different ways to count the cookies on the sheet Practice Teachers and schools will spend more class time in mathematical discussion and problem solving This may mean that there is less time for practice in the classroom Be sure to stay in close communication with your child s teacher and provide opportunities to practice classroom skills at home Explore word problems State assessments will have word problems for which there are multiple answers Children who do well in school will now be those who can identify all possible correct answers rather than a single best answer Tests may also have items for which there is no answer to select students may be asked to put numbers in order There will also be room for explanation When you have mathematical discussions with your child be sure to talk about the variety of possible answers and how you might come to them Have fun Another important shift is that the CCSS emphasize real world application Children will be asked to provide real world examples They will also be asked to solve real world problems These problems will be easier for students who have experiences that inform their thinking Children who play sports play instruments do art visit museums do service activities and travel will have more examples to refer to as they do their work If you would like to read the standards
