Just about every week I am getting inquiries to conduct STEM teacher training workshops and interactive STEM keynotes for the early childhood teaching audience. I’m elated that throughout our nation and world educational leaders and teachers have realized the importance of incorporating STEM practices and content into the early childhood classroom. Many early childhood teachers are already implementing STEM explorations within their classrooms, and do not even realize it. From block-building to designing ramps, and exploring STEM careers, STEM content is present in many early childhood classrooms. Within the past several years there have been numerous STEM-related books published geared for the early childhood level. Below is a list of some of my favorite STEM references for early childhood educators and parents of young children. The following books are well written, have great ideas, and illustrations. I highly recommend that individuals schools, districts, and parents consider purchasing a copy of each of the following. If your district and or school is considering incorporating STEM practices and content into the early childhood classroom, and are looking for quality STEM teacher training please complete the contact form on this webpage.
