Critical Thinking Skills for Preschoolers: 4 Fun Activities to Try at Home

For preschoolers, critical thinking involves the ability to think clearly and rationally in order to understand logical connections between ideas.

To engage in reflection and independent thought, children must be encouraged to become active learners rather than passive recipients of information.

Furthermore, rigorously questioning ideas and assumptions is all about determining whether arguments and findings represent the entirety of the facts of a situation.

While intuition and instinct can take preschoolers so far, it is critical thinking skills that allow children to identify, analyse and solve problems systematically.

9 Quick and Easy STEAM Play Date Ideas for Preschoolers

 

Play dates are a great way for your preschooler to learn and bond with other children.

3 Magical Music Activities for Preschoolers

 
Music is everywhere we go.

From the busker on the street to the radio playing in the grocery store, it is almost impossible for your preschooler to ignore the constant sounds going on in the world around them.

However, did you know that introducing your child to music is an excellent way to provide learning opportunities that pave the way for vocabulary building and math comprehension?

Young children tend to have a shorter attention span than adults, and they can sometimes find it difficult to stay still.

Channeling this energy in a positive way through activities focused around music ensures your child gets the stimulation they need to grow and develop in a fun and welcoming setting.

At our Kids Konnect preschools in San Mateo, Oakland, Pacifica, and San Leandro, our play-based curriculum is packed with regular music and movement sessions that put a smile on every child’s face and even satisfy our teachers urges to dance.
