Yes folks, from then on I was hooked… and I still am. Now, I’m not nearly as bendy as I was at the height of my dancing days but I still value flexibility both physically and intellectually. What’s been surprising me lately is the way that students use materials flexibly. I’ve been astounded by the number of times I’ve discovered the children playing with something in one area of the classroom that I thought would never wander from its home. It’s fascinating. Children collaborate and work independently as they put materials to all kinds of new and interesting uses.
