Thoughts

I tried to do an “interactive” felt board this week. Each child was given a bicycle and they were told to bring their bicycle up and place it on the felt board when their color was called. It did not go very well. Children didn’t want to leave their felt after they had placed it on the board, so other children couldn’t put their felt up. I had to take felts off to make room for others, so children were sad that their felts were taken off…there were a lot of issues!! I might try this again with older children and with a smaller crowd, but for this group…I probably won’t do it again.
