To have a structure and routines that are always remaining the same will help the child to anticipate what is about to happen. This makes the learning situation safe for a child.
10-Part Teacher Training Series
In our 10-part series of teacher training, we will walk you through the topics and practicalities including transitions in Kide Lessons, pedagogical tips, questions, assessment, storytelling, children’s agency & preparation, drama approach, group management, adult’s role & home experiment, and scientific arguments behind the Kide-approach.
Adjusting your lessons to fit the different learning styles and levels
When classes have mixed learning abilities, it's crucial to find ways to keep things challenging and engaging for everyone. Find out how, here.
How We Handle Formative Assessment
If you're only assessing your students at the end of the learning process, how can you expect them to improve?
The Best Thing to Say When a Child Asks Any Question
There's a very simple way to answer most children's questions that gets them thinking. What do you think it is?
Science and Storytelling
We use stories to set the research problem for the whole lesson and to awaken any previous experiences the scientists might have of these phenomena, creating an imaginary science scenario where everything is possible.
Group Management and Supplies
At the beginning of the story, the child runs in and goes straight to the new interesting toy. Is there something we could do here to help the child to come to the circle together?
Using Drama and the Arts to Teach Science
We use the drama approach, as it helps the child to pay attention and motivates them to get involved. Stories and play make the scientific phenomena easier to approach.
How to Control Classroom Chaos
Our aim should be active learning and a safe learning environment. Not smoothness and control.
Help from Other Adults in Science Lessons
How can you use other adults (like parents) in Kide Science lessons to help further improve the experience for your young scientists?
