Our routine in kindergarten is fairly consistent. And similar to how we have workshop blocks of time for reading, writing, and math -- we also have a workshop for play, called Choice Time. During this time, kindergarten students get to choose how they want to play. These guided play centers are purposeful, engaging, developmentally appropriate, and evolving. Kindergartners get opportunities to explore their world with their peers through play. During our play workshop, similar to other academic workshops, we begin with a mini-lesson, in which I hone in on a skill or strategy that will support the children in play. The students get time to explore and play, and then we end with a share of our experiences, reflecting on what students practiced or discovered. Play isn't a luxury, it's a necessity. Play is valuable for a myriad of reasons. Play shapes the brain, making humans smarter and more adaptable. It provides opportunities for the development of emotional regulation, creating and resolving uncertainty, collaboration, creativity, speech and language skills, empathy, inquiry, and independence. Academics can be easily woven into the fabric of play. Play is often a form of story-telling, and we know that a child's oral language skills fuel reading and writing development. All of my students love dramatic play: they often choose the ever-evolving center, despite our lack of furniture. We have had a house (kitchen), diner, store, and more. Providing more structure with kitchen furniture will help them be more engaged, the play will more purposeful and guided, and possibilities are endless. With a birch, school-grade kitchen, the kitchen could be just that: or it could be easily transformed to other things, such as a store, veterinarian's office, post office, or restaurant, thanks to the simple design that a plastic kitchen doesn't provide.
