I just finished putting together two new resources for the classroom and I LOVE them! I’ve been working on these for a while and I am so excited to share them with you because they are going to add value to your classroom centers!
One thing that I’ve always struggled with are the wanderers – those children who have a really hard time choosing an activity, so they just kind of wander around. I also have a hard time helping children who don’t understand how to play all by themselves, you know, the kids who need to be told what to do and when to do it. I designed these specifically to help with these two types of children.
I’ve created Challenge Books for each classroom center. Each page of each book is a new challenge for children to try. All of these are very simple activities that children can do with a minimal assistance, so they can try them independently. You can put all of the pages together on a binder ring so that they can hang right in the center. This will let you take them off the ring to give to the child so that they can focus on one challenge at a time.
This all makes perfect sense in my head, so I hope that I’m explaining it well! Here are some pictures so that you can see for yourself:
I’d love to know what you think! Try these out in your room and let me know how it goes.
