 Most early childhood teachers are using learning centers in the classroom, but do not approach them in ways that fully support a variety of learning opportunities. This book approaches learning centers through the STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) lens, and shares how themes can be integrated into centers to promote creativity and higher-level thinking. STEM Play  provides varied activities for the most common centers: Art, blocks, dramatic play, literacy, math, science, music and movement. Full of beautiful, full-color photos that show the activities in real early childhood classrooms, teachers can easily use the book’s ideas immediately in their curriculum. STEM Play also includes a “How To” section for teachers who wish to expand on the STEM focus and use themed activities in their learning centers.

“This wonderful guide integrates STEM (and STEAM) into mandated 'centers' concepts--making it easier for educators to cross over into more contemporary teaching ideas. And it’s so EASY to use! The text not only gives specific concepts, but explains skill sets, materials needed and theme integration.”

“Most activities suggested materials teachers have on hand- another plus!”
