ABOUT US

At KlevaKids our passion is to expose children to science in a way that is entertaining and fun. We understand the challenges of integrating science into the early childhood classroom and home. Therefore, we have created a innovative format that allows you to engage children in discovering the amazing world around them. Our books incorporate already established research that multi-sensory educational activities accelerate learning. This is combined with established research on the benefits of dialogic reading. The result is a dynamic process that facilitates both learning of science and literacy development simultaneously.

All of our books are formatted in a four-line rhyming scheme and contain a song to reinforce the science concept. In addition to the song, our dialogic books contain amazing art projects, exciting experiments, and innovative integrated learning prompts. Our books are beautifully designed and easy to use. At KlevaKids we believe that science should be fun for young children and that literacy development is essential to any academic foundation. We are devoted to providing you with products that make it easy for you to bring science into your early childhood classroom or home. Lighting a path to learning by making science and literacy development fun for preschool and early age children is indeed a worthy endeavor.

The KlevaKids format promotes:

  • Science through inquiry, discovery, observation, and experiments
  • Math such as counting and patterns
  • Language arts like sounds, word recognition, and vocabulary
  • Executive functions including self-regulation and cooperation
  • Gross motor skills expressed through movement
  • Fine motor skills guided by art activities 

IMPACT ON LITERACY

The KlevaKids approach emphasis communication between the child and storyteller, as well as, among the children in a group setting. The KlevaKids multi-sensory approach facilitates the furtherance of communication development to include visual representation, verbal expression, and reading skills. Ironically, while learning science concepts is the focus, the science concepts cannot be conveyed without adequate literacy skills. Hence, the most immediate observable impact tends to be improved literacy skill development, regardless of the child's current skill level.

LEADERSHIP
