I knew that when I saw a class list of 26 little kinders, it was going to be everything I had to keep things under control. In order to keep things sane, I would have to keep my centers and stations small and in order to keep them small I would have to have more stations and centers. But with one of me and my allotted aide time, how on earth could I make it happen? I had to try and give my kinders the opportunity to be independent and take control of their own learning.
I had to quickly figure out what my go to strategies to move them towards taking control over their own learning.
