Set in Playdough, not Stone


At Acorn each classroom has a schedule that we generally follow because, as we all know, consistency is great for young children. However, we are all very cognizant of time being something the kids should control sometimes. When you’ve made the NYC skyline with blocks, you should be able to keep working on it, or at least save it, right? When you’re working on books about the Iditarod you should be able to take as long as you need to complete them, even if it’s a month. We are very attuned to the rhythm of the children and the rhythm of the room as a whole and schedules are not set in stone here.
