“Guided Discovery is a teaching strategy used to introduce materials in the classroom. The primary goal of Guided Discovery is to generate interest and excitement about classroom resources and help children explore their possible uses. Guided Discovery also provides opportunities to introduce vocabulary, assess children’s prior knowledge, and teach responsible use and care of materials.”
This set includes a worksheet to help introduce the rules and care for some basic classroom materials like crayons, scissors, glue sticks, markers, and stamps. This is perfect for early elementary students as they are learning how to use classroom supplies. They are also great to use throughout the school year as students need reminders for how to use the materials correctly. Each worksheet gives basic rules for use and clean up, and gives students an opportunity to practice using the material.
