In kindergarten, centers are a staple! I don't know what I would do without them. They allow me to differentiate learning for my very diverse kinder kids while allowing me to pull small groups to work with. We have listening center, work work, writing center, big books, reading center, pocket chart, and computers. While I enjoy our literacy-based centers, though, there are some other centers that I absolutely cannot live without. I call them "creative centers."
Our creative centers are pretty typical of what you might find in a preschool classroom. We have lots of hands-on, play-based centers that my kids absolutely love. There are three of them, though, that once I started implementing them a year ago I knew I'd never be able to live without.
I wish I could see how other kindergarten classrooms ran centers. I love my literacy centers, but these "creative" centers are truly my favorite. I hope I never teach in a school (again) that doesn't have a play kitchen! And if they don't, I'll be lobbying for one!
