I thought it would be nice to give you a snap shot of what your children do when they come into the room everyday. When they enter they follow a simple routine. First, the kids get out their folders and check them for their homework and important papers. Second, they get to explore one of our classroom centers. This allows children to have some social development and exploration time at the beginning of each day for approximately 15 minutes. The centers include: Writing, Science, Computer, Reading, and Math. The children rotate through the centers each week. Some of the centers have a specific task or they are exploratory. For example, the math center this week chidlren have been exploring pegs and geo boards. The allows children to look at balance, patterns, adding, subtracting, etc. The writing center this week has allowed children to explore their own writing on various papers. We have had story paper and grid paper. A group of children in the afternoon decided to create a graph at the center with the grid paper. The morning group worked together to create a story about animals. It is so much fun to talk with the children and watch them learn during this time…
