Providing interactive learning options is a great way for children to start their school day. For example, our first grade classes have several options to start the day, prepare themselves, and be ready to learn. For some, the wonders of living science are explored with hands-on experiences—observing, touching and interacting with animals that live in the elementary school's science lab. Other children choose to move their bodies through organized games and play that readies them to be able to focus in the classrooms. Yet another option is stopping by the Library to select a book or engage in conversation with Mrs. Rosoff (our Little School Librarian) about new reads. Children need opportunities to make choices, organize their time, socialize, and play with one another at school.
