Centers. I appreciate them in theory, but they are one of my struggles. The task of creating a meaningful activity that suits the school's philosophy de hour to occupy kids while I work with others is one of my biggest challenges. Originally this year, we weren't going to do centers due to an arrangement of small groups. However, said arrangement has not been worth the time suck of arranging it when one considers other considerations. So... It's back to an old small group schedule. Which I'm fine with... Except for centers. I'm sure I'm overthinking these, but, goodness, why are centers so hard for me?
