I must say my newbies are really getting the hang of learning their way around our center chart and learning how to "do" centers. Check out some of what we did below. You can find all of the activities below HERE.
As you can tell from the pictures below, I always try to have a variety of things the children are working on. I like to have them as engaged as possible with manipulatives, games, spinners, cubes, etc. And, I also like to have at least 1 center where they are "on the move".
Just had to post this...I think my favorite spot in the classroom and some of my most favorite times in the classroom are spent at the rug. I LOVE doing whole group activities here and whole group games. I just feel connected and like they are getting the most from me.
