Observance 275

She read the book The Hungry Caterpillar to them and talked about a butterfly’s life cycle. Some ineffective strategies that I observed were during free choice center play time and during transitions. Free choice center play time seemed chaotic. Having less centers available at once or having guided activities taking place at a couple of the centers should improve this. Children also showed restlessness and misbehaved more often during times of transition. The teacher sat the children at the table or on the carpet during these times. If I were the teacher, I would engage the children in an activity to keep them engaged during these waiting periods.
