Zion Lutheran Early Childhood Education Center


Kindergarten +

An Enrichment program designed specifically for kindergartners

 This club involves hands-on projects relating to science, technology,
engineering, art and mathematics.

Our project-approach teachers will guide the children in STEAM components
that help children become prepared for this world in which they live.

Skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity are
used during exploration and learning.

STEAM MAKER STATIONS

    Students will be challenged to think like an inventor as they use manipulatives and assignment cards to complete a creative, complex task.  The planning and creating process will be documented through a technology, art, and/or writing journal.

STEAM LESSON

    Students will be introduced to a project relating to one or more of the STEAM elements where they will engage in questioning, problem solving, collaboration, and hands-on activities.

GROSS MOTOR and SNACK

    During this time the physical needs of the children will be addressed. A healthy snack will be provided as well as a time for large and small muscles to develop through outside or gym time.

STEAM LESSON CONCLUSION

    Students will conclude their learning of the STEAM lesson and will follow up with a reflection/journal time where they can share what they have observed, learned, or experienced.  Their learning may be documented through print, technology, art, or writing.

JESUS TIME

    During this time the students will learn stories from the Bible and grow in their faith.
