STEM for Little Sprouts – Connecting Hands-on Science with Children’s Literature

Audience: Pre-K and Early Childhood Educators

Time: Customized Workshops Range from 2 to 5 hours

STEM for Little Sprouts is more than just a collection of great hands-on activities, it’s a whole new way to teach science through the medium of children’s literature. This workshop is a must for early childhood educators who are looking easy, affordable, hands-on ways to help young learners strengthen their critical thinking skills and increase their sense of wonder, discovery and exploration.

Today’s young learners need hands-on opportunities to actually DO more science on a daily basis. This highly engaging training is perfect for early childhood teachers who need creative science integration strategies and who want to learn how to make science more fun and meaningful for their young children.

“STEM for Little Sprouts gave our teachers the real-world tools, strategies and best practices the needed that inspire and motivate children to really do science.”

Michele Olsen, Early Childhood Director, Terrebonne Parish School District

Workshop Highlights…

  • Uncover the secrets to developing an integrated curriculum that teaches STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) through the medium of children’s literature. 
  • Use elements of the story line to introduce or reinforce fundamental parts of your early childhood science curriculum.
  • Learn how to present STEM activities that boost creativity and help to develop critical thinking skills in young learners. 
  • Take home more than twenty kid-tested, teacher-approved activities that are guaranteed to get young learners doing more science the very next day.

Engage Young Children in Real Learning

Throughout the workshop, Steve explores a variety of techniques and presentation strategies for connecting science with popular children’s literature. Explore a number of great science ideas and age-appropriate STEM challenges that encourage young children to “play with a purpose.”  Learn how to use elements of the story line to teach and reinforce fundamental building blocks of your science curriculum. You will uncover the secrets of developing your own unique presentation style that makes young learner want to learn more.

Remove the FEAR of Teaching STEM

Let’s face it, many early childhood teachers are apprehensive or even afraid to teach STEM because no one has ever given them teaching strategies that really work. With over 25 years of experience, Steve Spangler is the perfect person to help your teachers unlock their potential and uncover new possibilities for creating discovery-filled experiences that really work.

Science Standards & More

Each activity featured in the workshop helps teach the basic skills of science inquiry – to count, compare, classify, observe and measure (the C.C.C.O.M. approach). Steve deconstructs every experience to give teachers the strategies for presenting the literature in a way that provokes questions in the minds of the children, and then teaches them how to build the science connection that invites children to ask even more questions. Multiply that by 20 and you’re in for an amazing day of learning.

Steve made it fun, easy and the concepts so approachable and understandable that I am finally doing and enjoying science activities with my students. He talked about creating “transformational experiences,” well he did it on me.

Veronica, Early Childhood Options

I just thought we were doing some science experiments today but it was a nice surprise to see your passion for kids that the science became secondary.  Thank you for sharing your gift Steve! I’m taking teaching enthusiasm back to my classroom.

Nicole, Region 10

Thank you.  This was the best workshop I’ve attended virtually.  I was engaged the entire workshop and wish it could have been longer.  Can’t wait to try what I’ve learned in my early childhood classroom.
