Recommended for adoption with 100% TPG alignment
Welcome to STEAM Themes: A clear and concise STEAM program for Prekindergarten Teaching.
Children follow a prekindergarten class within the imaginary Kingdom of Color as they move through the school year.
Children engage with 13 distinct themes through the year in a fully integrated STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) program.
Children learn through purposeful, play orientated, hands on experiences that are engaging, fun, colorful, loud and messy.
There are a wide variety of reader books available, which are aligned to themes and activities.
This is a clear and simple program for teachers to follow.
Implementation and ongoing support is available.
Personalized materials kits are also available.
TPS (Teacher, Parents, Students) are a teacher/writer group with K-12 adopted curricula, which is being used in over 70 school districts. STEAM Themes has been created, from scratch, to exactly align to the TPG state requirements, and has been recommended for adoption with 100% TPG coverage.
Children learn in a variety of ways and in a variety of settings. 13 themes, from the first week in prekindergarten; camping, weather and more, provide cross domain learning in flexible groupings. Plenty of structural and scheduling information is provided for teachers. Theme related lesson plans provide simple, easy to implement, teaching.
28 relevant and tailored reader books support student learning.
STEAM has been proven to provide excellent learning experiences for children, and ensures that children reach their full potential through a varied, challenging, and fully integrated program. Children engage in fun learning through play, and complete a variety of projects.
When making your program choice, STEAM Makes Sense! “Building in opportunities in STEM classes to develop and use the principles, skills and ingenuity of the arts can “serve as an on-ramp for STEM success for underrepresented students. Engaging students’ strengths using art activities increases motivation and the probability of STEM success,” by “offering more diverse learning opportunities and greater access to STEM for all types of learners” (Jolly 2014).
