Here we are at the change of seasons, and the change of themes. My group is always very busy....now is not really an exception....however, their interest lies where mine DOES NOT! For those of you experimenting with the emergent plan....you may know how this is a challenge. I love the science and even the art area. I do like my teacher directed time, a bit too much for the fact that I am aiming for more emergent callings. My group, though, has chosen the BLOCK AREA as their interest. I have NEVER, EVER done a block related time.....and the block area isn't a place I would spend my time if I were a child. SOOOOOOOOOOO I look to you all.....please, someone......tell me how much you love your block areas. Tell me how you think you could work the block area into a content area for what you discussing now. Please help me to gain an appreciation for this ECE room core area.....then maybe I can join my boys in their appreciation!
