“I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand” is a quote I often use while teaching parents/providers – how to teach.  When we lecture, little is retained.  When we show how – they can recall information, but lessons are learned best through doing. Especially when students are doing SENSORY based activities!

When students can FEEL lessons – physically or emotionally – they gain confidence in being able to teach others what they have learned.  Last week my tot to teen students learned about animal’s preparing for winter.  This week we talked about how animals use their senses, just as we do.  This week we transitioned to sensory studies, with help from Mother Goose Time.

Mother Goose Time is a prepackaged curriculum where little learners can be introduced to theme’s such as “Sights and Sounds.”  Older students love teaching preschoolers such topics, while exploring such lessons themselves.  Theme based lessons can integrate ALL subject matters, and be STREAMS focused: Science, Technology, Reading (&wRiting), Engineering, Art, Math (&Music), Social Studies (&hiStory)!

Social media is a great resource for connecting – and a tool to to teach all ages about communication and technology time-lines.  Time lines help students connect math to history and encourage discussion about the pro’s and con’s of technology. As the New Year approaches we’re developing NEW programs for students of all ages –  which will include tech-time.
