PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Looking for a classroom-tested, super simple way to incorporate PLAY into your day? How to do that well is a question I wrestled with for YEARS. I knew play was important, but what would I have kids do? How could I manage it easily so it wasn't time-consuming or crazy town? :)

I finally implemented this plan mid-year last year and it's been AMAZING! It literally "runs" itself. Grab this "Choice Time Organization Kit" and get all the files, ideas, experienced teacher tips, and more to make it EASY for you to add some all-important PLAY into your student's day!


ALL THE INTERESTING DETAILS...
*******************************************
Mr. Rogers said it best: "Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play IS serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood."

And even Albert Einstein proclaimed that, "Play is the highest form of research."

It's a valuable, meaningful, educational part of the school day. If it's something new you want to try or even if you've done it for years and are searching for a better, easier, organized way, this kit is for YOU!

You get:
⭐️ a completely EDITABLE powerpoint file where you can type in your student's names and/or create additional activity options

⭐️ 55 pages of awesome ideas for what you could have out as options for kids to do... detailed list below. Many are simple and probably consist of things you already have around your classroom or could very easily acquire like: blocks, dominoes, coloring, games, calculators, magnet, etc.

⭐️ 4 pages of color pictures, detailed instructions, and experienced teacher tips to help make everything as simple as possible for you!

You will need a simple pocket chart or something similar to slip the choice time options into. Plain tape along with magnetic tape on a white board could also work just as well. Everything else is provided in this kit!

Like I mentioned earlier, the way this is organized, it literally "runs" itself. You'll love it and your students will be the real winners who benefit from having an awesome teacher like YOU who recognizes the VALUE of play! Have fun!
