during circle time we sit on little pieces of tape.
but when it is story time, children are invited to move so they can see.
our preschoolers learn very quickly that…
if you can’t see, move.
if you are squished, move.
if you are crowded, move.
if you are too far away, move.
if you are too close, move.
they can move at any point in the story, as their needs change.
right on cue, by mid year some of the oldest kids stay in the back. they realize they can still see and they are less crowded.
