STEM Activity Books For Parents, Teachers and Care-Givers:
My book STEAM: Preschool Activities for STEM Enrichment with co-author Jamie Hand is the #1 book for preschool and kindergarten on Amazon.com. It was designed for busy parents of preschoolers to download and pick one activity every day for 5 weeks. Most of the supplies needed can be found in your pantry. The activities are easy to prepare and fun to do. Read more about the book here.
STEM Readers For Preschoolers:
Children are using technology to read books more today than ever before. I designed a series of e-books that are specifically for our beginning readers. Each book has simple sentences with repeated high frequency words, includes strong picture clues and focus on high-interest topics.The best part is that each book ends with a hands-on STEM challenge where children are encouraged to go and do and activity.
The idea is that they read the story independently for 5 minutes and then complete the hands-on activity for 10 minutes. These books work great on classroom Smartboards, in the car on the i-pad, and for an afternoon of reading and STEM fun!
There are currently 3 books available at the learn to read level:
