During maker time throughout the week, our classrooms are transformed into hubs for exploration and innovation. Working in centers connected by an academic theme, our prekindergarten students collaborate to develop and solve all sorts of creative and engineering problems. The air buzzes with excitement as our students move from one challenge to the next.
We focus on process, not product, during dedicated maker time and the results are pretty amazing. In this time of free-but-guided exploration, our students take the reins. They create stories, games and connections that we might not have the opportunity to see in more teacher-directed lessons.
