Early Education Teaching Kit

Teach through play

We believe that classes should be fun – both for teachers and students. By keeping students enthralled and entertained we make learning seem like play. The Early Education Teaching Kit is designed for the comprehensive development of the youngest.

It comprises activities for cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development.

What does a typical lesson look like?

We have created the Kit to improve the acquisition in key developmental areas in pre-k and kindergarten. Most of the activities in this set can be used in classes with both younger and older children. Content of the exercises can be repeated many times with the same group of students.

Example Exercise: Spatial Orientation And Directions

In the Badge interface, found in the Photon EDU app, choosing the blue color will make the robot turn right, while choosing the yellow color – left. To begin, the teacher puts a blue and a yellow band on each of the robot’s antennae. Similarly, students put the bands on their hands – blue on the right, yellow on the left. Students then map the robot’s path from point A to point B, turning along the way to, for example, avoid obstacles.

The colors allow them to tell left from right much more easily while observing the robots’ movements in the real world helps them grasp the concept of directions much more quickly. Moreover, they learn to predict what the robot will do after they choose a particular color assigned to a specific direction, allowing them to program the robot at will. Finally, children simulate the robots’ movements, while the colors help them consolidate their newly acquired knowledge.

Example Exercise: Name that emotion

The teacher opens the Ready-made activities section in the Photon EDU app and gets ready to use the program that draws emotive sounds at random. The teacher includes emotions depicted on the selected flashcards. Petting the robot can be one of many triggers for the program.

After preparing the play area, ask the children to sit on the floor around flashcards. Next, children approach the robot one by one and pet it. In response, the Photon Robot plays a random emotive sound. The child has to guess the emotion, find a flashcard depicting it and name it. The script is a perfect introduction to discussing different emotions and coping with them.

Each plan provides teachers with detailed instructions on how to conduct the activities. Depending on the exercise, the students or the teacher control the robot’s actions.

Cognitive Development

Thanks to exercises in the set, children will learn about colors, shapes, and letters. They will also learn about ecology, weather, and days of the week.

Emotional Development

The set supports emotional development through naming and displaying emotions, learning about empathy, and coping with difficult emotions.

Social Development

The materials available in the set allow for learning about social norms, polite expressions, and behaving in difficult and stressful situations.

Physical Development

The exercises in this Kit support physical development through gymnastics, dancing, building obstacle courses for the robot, racing with the robot, and much more.

All teaching plans and aids included in the kit are fully adapted to the age of students and correct both in terms of methodology and content.

Photon and 50 lesson plans make the central part of this kit. Additionally, teachers will find all accessories necessary to carry out the activities, including two educational mats and a deck of flashcards. The lesson plans are organized according to key areas: cognitive, social, emotional, physical. Each plan provides teachers with detailed instructions on how to conduct the activities. The set includes a comprehensive user’s manual to walk the teacher through the first steps of using the robot and describe in detail how to use the Photon EDU app and other materials.
