Play- It’s Part of Our Routine!

In KB students have inside play time every morning and 3 times for outside play.

In KB we view play as a necessary part of learning and a way to grow socially and emotionally.

During play time students have access to toys, books, writing materials, and math manipulatives. The toys and materials available change throughout the year and have connections to units of inquiry. In the beginning of the year play serves as a way to students to get to know eachother, students to get to know the classroom, and for teachers and students to spend authentic time together.

Later in the year students will transition into productive play which uses the skills students develop in different areas.
