The School District of Beloit has made a significant investment in preschool science materials during the 2019-2020 school year.
It is important to note that there are no performance indicators listed for Four-Year-Old Kindergarten (4K). Our committee suggests that educators use the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards to guide their work as they take advantage of the natural connections to science that come up daily in an effective 4K experience. The Wisconsin Department of Public has in-depth standards that have helped teachers with the content of their 4K whole group, small group, and interest centers.
Kids are natural scientists!
