One of the most popular centers is Read the Room. A group of sprouts take pointers (we’ve got some really FUN ones too, try offering Pokémon pointers to kindergartners and see how fast they jump to read) and read letters, names, words, numbers, whatever around the room.
Today during centers, as I walked by a group of girls reading, I overheard the following:
“Ok, you’re Mrs. D. and I’m Mr. A. – ready, go!” A little girl instructed her friends.
“Boys and girls, please be respectful, ‘sponsible, and safe,” the little girl told her friends.
They continued to play teacher and, naturally, after they spotted me listening, began really hamming it up. I guess they really are listening when we talk.
In what other profession do you get to watch children pay homage to you in a loving, complimentary way? It’s truly a tribute… and they’re reading too so it’s really a win-win situation. Love it!
