Open For Business
If you have ever tried to be create a space with a group of 16 kinders, you understand that chaos will ensue. I like to refer to it as controlled chaos. In order to keep me from losing my mind I set up committees. As an adult, committees don't typically excite me, but you should have seen the ownership these kids took for their assigned work. We had the following committees: sorting inventory, making price tags, creating a store sign, and labeling the categories of inventory. They were engaged, chatting with each other and making decisions about they best way to create their store. As our time ended, the kids were thinking of all the different roles they could play in the store: shopper, cashier, and assistant. I can't wait to watch them enjoy what they have created.
