As you probably know kindergarteners learn so much through hands-on play and exploration! While we do follow a rigorous academic curriculum, I also try to incorporate play-based learning as much as possible throughout our day. One way is by setting up what I call "Explore Tables" for students to do when they are finished working on a task, or during their choice time. These are generally math-, science- or literacy-related, and allow students to learn or practice skills in a developmentally-appropriate way. Below are some pictures of Explore Tables we've had so far this month!
