By midyear, the children are answering in a complete sentence.
"I want to play at the block center."
Towards the end of the year, I model (a lot) and encourage students
"I am going to art to watercolor paint."
I do limit the number of children at each center,
but they do not wear necklaces or move their card on a choice board.
Based on the size of our room,
I limit dramatic play and blocks to four children each.
Most other centers limit themselves by the number of chairs at a table.
Modeling, playing, listening, sharing, observing, problem solving,
Here is a pinnable post image for your convenience!
