Morning Explore....what is it? Why don't you just teach when the kids arrive? The thing I find most essential about explore is: Choice. It's the time of the day where kids can choose: to play a game, read alone, read with a friend, do some art, use the computer, or get help with homework. It's very empowering for kids to choose what they think is important, or what they think they may need, in their day. Watch the video and see my class engaging in Morning Explore.
