To begin with, center time allows children in PRE-K to grow in their social skills. They can interact with their peers during this time, and it is happening almost constantly. Centers can help children socially: Kids need to find a way to join in playing : They need to negotiate the guidelines for what they’ll be doing in the center. One child may want some time to herself at a center, and she needs to express that to her friends. Children constantly work on who is using what material at any given time, and if they’re willing to share that with some friends. A child might be struggling with a task he very much wants to do. He can ask a friend for help, a friend could offer to help, The center of feelings help them to express their emotions, they can talk with the teacher or friends and negotiate what they feel or just be themselves and stay there and enjoy the place. Center time is a safe place to make mistakes. This seems like such a small aspect of the conversation, but it is so very important. Mistakes are a part of the learning process, and the center of the feelings and emotions allows for a low-stress time for them. One of the most important things I try to teach my children is to understand and name their feelings. It’s an important lesson for children to realize that different emotions are okay and to recognize those feelings in themselves and eventually in others. It’s especially important for kids to know they don’t always have to feel happy. That it’s normal to feel sad, shy or even jealous. Once children learn to understand how they are feeling, they can understand others.
