Forging Family Partnerships with STE(A)M

Cynthia Hernandez, PCS Edventures!
Grades: K-3
Join us in an exploration of best practices and strategies designed to help educators build strong family partnerships to promote meaningful learning. We’ll review tools of the trade, useful techniques, and available K-3 STEAM resources that were specifically designed to support hands-on, student-parent learning. Sending materials home for learners and their families to work through together is a well-established practice that can be further improved by incorporating a STEAM focus. This presentation will discuss how combining hands-on lessons with fun characters and stories can bring Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math subjects to life. This focus on real-world applications exposes learners to a variety of subjects and careers from an early age, guiding them to discover their passions and desire to continue exploring. We’ll also touch on how you can leverage ESSER III funds to support you on your learning recovery journey. Attendees will walk away with a list of tools, techniques, and resources that will help all grade-level educators kickstart or increase family engagement.
