Out of the many things I'm passionate about - inquiry is one that is close to the top of my list - it's a big list but it's up at the top. The whole idea of encouraging students to question and wonder is so exciting to me. Or maybe it's because I didn't always find that policy, "No question is a stupid question" to be true as a student.
Regardless, I have always held inquiry at the top of my list. So when I began my second year teaching young 5s, I knew I wanted to integrate inquiry even more into our curriculum. I just was not sure how. However, I watched my students closely and used them to guide my inquiry exploration.
You may ask, "How did you do that?"
