T and I were goofing off this week when he asked me to "be the skeleton who is going to get hit by bally." I said yes, of course! So we did and I would like to share the outcome with you! Please watch this 58 second video and listen for his sweet voice over my pathetic skeleton voice! <embarrassing> I didn't realize at the time that I would be sharing it with the masses!
Did you hear how many times he said, "Let me try that again." THREE! He said it 3 times and after he said it, he changed something. To me, this is STEM in its simplest, most appropriate form for a 4 year old.....and first grader. Getting an idea, making a plan, trying something and if it doesn't work, changing a little something and doing it again. I think moments like these, opportunities like these at home and school, are the foundation for STEM ideas and character.
I mean, we don't give up around here, we (quoting my engineer here) "try it again!" At least half the time anyway! :)
