There is simply nothing more incredible than a child’s imagination! The following was an entirely child-lead activity. There was zero teacher interaction or influence:
Four children were playing together during choice time. Two friends decided to go on a “date” (precious), and pretended to go to a restaurant. Two other friends decided to work at the restaurant; one being the server, and the other the chef. The children decided who would play each role, how they would act it out, and what toys and materials to use…all without teacher influence! It’s amazing to watch children model behavior they have seen…so, remember to always be on your best behavior…they’re always watching!!!
