It's been rainy and miserable ALL week and I was experiencing cabin fever. The kids cheer every time we have indoor recess, so maybe I was the only one?!?
We played with blocks, puzzles, board games, dolls, and created a restaurant this week. When I see my class enjoying these games, developing socially, being creative and just plain old playing, it makes me wonder what it would have been like to teach Kindergarten when it wasn't so focused on academics.
The kids started writing orders down and I was so very proud ;)
Good old fashioned dolls and dollhouse courtesy of my amazing assistant!

My future engineer's skyscraper. I cannot wait to start the Force & Motion unit with my boys especially! My assistant and the kids in the background were waiting for the snow ;)
Do you still have centers like these that your kids participate in daily? Do you teach half day or full day Kindergarten?
