Kids enter school with a natural curiosity for learning. They inquire. They explore. They create. They look for patterns. K-2 teachers connect the dots between content areas. We connect the dots of content to critical thinking, confidence to creativity, productive struggle to independence, instruction to assessment. Most importantly, when we connect with other creative folks, we learn new ways to make learning come alive for young learners.
