So, how can you support this idea of encouraging creative and critical thinking in your child’s learning?
One way is to begin to talk more about this at home. When you hear your child talk about STEAM, ask them to explain to you what they did and what creative solutions they came up with.
Also, over the holidays, give your child a chance to play and explore with toys, for example, LEGO, and online tools that encourage creativity.
Better yet, set up a STEAM activity at home. Here are some links below that can support you in this:
