10 Things Worthy of Teaching in Kindergarten
Posted in Education, Kindergarten
10. Teachers (and other experts) can be wrong.
9. Questions are better than answers.
8. Problems can have multiple solutions.
7. If something goes without saying, question it.
6. The opposite may also be true.
5. Certain things can be true and false at the same time.
4. Adults see and hear the world differently than children.
3. Zoning out may be more beneficial than zoning in.
2. Failure is an important component of success.
1. Unlearning is as important as learning.
P.S. Even if you disagree with the idea that unlearning should be taught in kindergarten, I'd strongly encourage all kids to keep drawing outsides the lines; maintain a notebook of things they don't know about; as well as make an occasional visit to an anti-library.
