I agree it is important to integrate STEM with early childhood education. I believe there should be more things for this age group besides little disk activites. I understand there are limitations to age appropriate skills for developing STEM activties but I feel like there can be a whole lot more lessons/activites created for supporting STEM for the early childhood group.

My school adopted a new curriculum this year and I have discovered some of the lessons we do do not keep their attention for very long. The activites say they are suppose to last for 15 minutes but with my group we get them done within 5-6 minutes and then I have to find other things to incorporate to keep them engaged in the lesson.

This chapter book provides effective information about building classroom management which is an ongoing skill. This chapter makes very insightful points about being clear and consistent with routines and procedures to make sure your classroom is managed in a positive way that will help both the teachers and the students be successful. One of the biggest takeaways from this chapter was allowing students leadership roles in the classroom. This is a great way to have students gain accountability skills and create a sense of community in the classroom. One thing this chapter addresses is being consistent with the classroom rules with your students. One thing I would add to this tip is reinforcing positive behaviors instead of bringing attention to every minor misbehavior. All of these tips from this chapter are a great way for teachers to promote a safe and effective learning environment.
