It’s too easy to always find a solution for a student who needs your help.
Kindergarteners especially will get very upset when they can’t find their crayons or scissors.
The easy way for a teacher to answer is “It’s OK, you can borrow a pair of scissors from me.” Instead of always readily finding a solution for your students, try responding with “Let’s think about how we can find them.” Then, you can assist the student in figuring out the best possible solution for finding their lost item.
One of the easiest and most effective ways to get young children to think critically is to brainstorm.
Fortunately, teachers can use a number of techniques that can help students learn critical thinking, even for children enrolled in kindergarten.
Here are some teaching strategies that may prove immediately effective: Traditionally, elementary teachers prepare templates for art projects before they give it to their students.
Instead, give students all of the supplies needed to create a snowflake, and let them do it on their own.
This will allow students to become critical thinkers because they will have to use their prior knowledge to consider what a snowflake looks like, how big it is, what color it is, etc.
