I am a mom of a 3 year old and a teacher in the Early Years. My son is in one of the well known international educational systems and they have decided to added a Superhero theme to their units this year. I know that this can be a fun unit for children but I also have some major issues with the unit
one of their vocabulary words is 'sidekick' this is not a word I would want my little one to use. I do not want him to think of anyone as his sidekick..... One of the other words was transform and there is a picture of the superhero transforming from human to superhero.... that is not what transform means...
The unit later on ask the children to design their own costume and build a den. But more concerning is when they are asking them to think of ways they could defend their den.... What educational value will my son get out of learning or just thinking about possible super defense mechanisms he could design.....
Is this what we want our children to be learning about in preschool???
