Limited Capacity filling up

We are firm believers that play is the work of childhood. After extensive research about the benefits of play in early childhood development, we have implemented multiple strategies in our primary classrooms. We have used Morning Meetings, Oral Language Play Centers, flexible scheduling, and added opportunities for unstructured play to ensure the growth of the whole child. In this session, you will see examples of Morning Meeting topics, Cooperative Learning strategies, Oral Language Play Center ideas and rubrics to assess social emotional development, along with sample schedules for implementation.
