Play centers is a really fun time for kids. However, in the beginning of the school year many children need a little help finding a place to play. I also feel that it is important to introduce the kids to all of the areas on the classroom to help them become more well rounded. I use rotating play centers throughout the year. It allows me to flex groups and mix and match as needed. If you have a rowdy group this is perfect. The boys and girls look forward to trying new areas. Make sure to add new focus toys and materials at least every two weeks if not every week!
