The Early Years: Getting Deep with Documentation
Ashbrook, Peggy
Science and Children, v54 n3 p28-29 Nov 2016
This column discusses resources and science topics related to students in grades preK to 2. Articles and lesson ideas for science learning often suggest that teachers have children "document" their observations, but these resources may not offer guidance on "why" teachers should help children document their work, "what" children should document, "how" to do it, and "why" and "how" teachers should document children's work, too. In this kindergarten practice, storytelling leads to drawing, adding more detail, and then writing as literacy skills are developed.
