Airplanes and Collages

Kindergarten students continued to lead more great interest driven centers this week. One student brought in material scraps and cardboard and students created collages. The discussions at the table were great as students decided whether to leave spaces or not and which colors to use.

In another class a student used his interest in airplanes to create an airport, as well as a paper airplane making and flying station.

Students have done amazing work in thinking about how to share their interests with others. One of my favorite parts of the day is when K students stand up to introduce their center to the class. Their peers ooh and ahhh, they ask great questions and they are EXCITED to learn from their friends! Today when I asked students which centers they were choosing, they ALL wanted to go to the student driven center!
