I volunteered two mornings a week in my grandson's K class three
years ago. All three K teachers had centers that the children
rotated through each day. There was a kitchen set that changed
throughout the year, a block area, seat work table, a "reading"
center and an activity that the teacher worked one on one or did
assessing on the days I was there. As far as I know none of the
other public school districts have centers and their K programs
are the watered down first grade type classes. This is a public
school but it is a charter so the teachers have more freedom to
organize their classrooms in the way they see fit.
I have another grandchild going into K this fall and I will
probably volunteer in her classroom also each week and she will
have a different teacher. I think from walking through the
classrooms this spring at an open house, the centers will still
be part of the everyday experience.
