I am beginning my second year of teaching GSRP (a free preschool program for 4 year olds). Last year I was in a district that used Creative Curriculum. My new school used High Scope. My first day was today and I got my classroom completely set up. My first day with students is not until next Monday so I do have some time to do some research. My question is how high scope differs from creative curriculum. I know do-plan-review is a big part of high scope. That I am not worried about because I actually did that with my students last year. I think what I am most worried about is small group. Last year small group consisted of a lot of crafts and projects which I was told is not allowed in high scope?? I understand everything needs to be open ended and child-driven. Does anyone have any ideas for small group, especially simple ideas for the first couple of weeks? Also, is there anything else I need to know in regards to what is frowned upon in high scope? Thank you for any feedback!
