Written by an educator, Much More Than a Learning Center presents a fun and educational method for setting up your Kindergarten classroom and creating activities to bring success to each and every student. Described by one of her principals as a qbeehive of activityq, this exciting system was developed by the author and teacher, Ruth Prevost. The book begins by clearly explaining how to set up the room and how to easily arrange and mix the students each day so everyone has the occasion to work with each of their classmates. The students not only receive in-depth studies in all the basics, but they also have many opportunities to dig deeper into activities they enjoy. In the lessons, the author includes her personal experiences of living overseas, travels, and her love of science. The entire year is conveniently presented in a chart that can be used as your lesson plans for the year or you can use the system's flexibility to include your own experiences and needs. Each activity is explained in simple terms and is supported with clear detailed illustrations. This system gives the teacher more time to work with the students individually as well as in groups, and it allows the children to learn at their own rate in a non-threatening environment because they know the routine, are relaxed, and have fun while learning.Ruth Prevost.
