Teamwork During Exploratory Play
Enrichment is a time for students to explore their interests. Choice times are a regular occurrence in which students get to choose their activity. During this time, students often find themselves working together to accomplish a task. This teamwork, although not specified by the teacher is encouraged and valued. This week we had a group of first graders come together to create a one hundred piece floor puzzle. The puzzle was challenging, but students persevered. The best part of this experience was that students shared the work and the joy of their accomplishment.
