Great helpful article. There are many benefits that children will learn from the simplest activities. It would be nice to teach children different occasions in their life like Halloween in enjoying the way. in addition, from this experiment, the children can learn a lot of science concepts in an interesting way. the children can know the difference between the liquids material that the teacher used and their colors of this liquids. in my opinion, the teacher can use the simplest activities with different materials that will help the children to learn more concept about Science like Buoyancy and diving.this experiment will make the children think about a lot of things and make them excited to learn more and this experiment make them ask a lot of question about what they see. I interesting and enjoying reading your article because you explain it step by step and use the picture for each step.

In the early childhood classroom, we can look at classroom management as a plan for what procedures our students will follow throughout each day as well as what the teacher's role is in helping our students have a successful experience each day.

Great tips for classroom management. The tips are especially good for primary grades.  It was interesting to realize these rules can be in place to ultimately foster some independence.  Consistency in rules and daily routines are essential for young children.

that is a great article. The children can learn multiple concepts especially with the science of liquids from one experience. the teacher can teach the multiple concepts in a fun way that will make the since easier for children. First, the kids will know why oil and water do not mix. second, the little children can learn different color and review it. this small experience for young children helps them to keep the information they know it from the experience because they can see, touch and hear the sound of water in it in one time.

Emily Perdomo's curator insight, September 14, 2:09 PM
R-This website is more like a blog where people can upload their articles and things they find informational and interesting for parents, teachers and school boards to see. This is more or less reliable because the website has all different types articles and it's main focus is definitely not disease but it is about trending topics and informative topics. 
A- Doctors also are able to write quotations because they deal with it on a daily basis as they are specialists. They also got quotations from children that have dealt with it on a daily basis for their whole lives and bring the perspectives in and how they live their lives and the views that they find dyslexia as a set back but not impossible to overcome. 
V- They are a website that contains informational articles/blogs so if there was something on there that could potentially hurt the reputation of the website, they would have something at stake. 
E-This cite does have expertise because it has evidence coming from children with dyslexia and doctors that deal with dyslexia, the blog got evidence and did research therefore I believe there is some expertise. 
N-There really isn't bias because it is just informational and it would only be bias if the blog was just based on opinion then it would be bias towards the children with dyslexia's side but this is just information on the effect it has for children, it isn't really picking sides.

TheKooalaBears's curator insight, May 10, 2015 12:03 AM

This article has a very interesting take on the educational gap that exists because of 1.) parents who may have/ not attended college 2.) children may not be able to go to pre-school because it may cost too much. In this study, it shows that children who attended pre-school had better verbal and language skills compared to those that didn't attend pre-school. According to the study, at age 3, children who have attended a quality pre-school have better verbal and reading skills than those that don't, which ultimately leads to a higher IQ
