Hello Cool Cats
I received an email from a lovely educator called Poh Lin. She is looking at changing her room to be more of an emergent program
Have a look at what she wrote and I would love you to give her some advise
The one thing that I need to improvise is having shelves and placing resources in the shelves for the children to access the resources instead of going into the store room daily to get the resources out for the children to play.
Our morning arrival routine is like this: The early morning staff member will choose toys from the store room to place on the tables for the arrival of the children. We find that this help to settle children who come early and when they see the toys on the tables. What do you think of this? I have one assistant who is very enthusiastic and she will set up almost the entire room. Sometimes I question whether are we giving the children choice? Meaning do we always set up the resources for them? or shouldn’t we allow the children to choose what they would like to do for today?
