"butting"

ABC- or number-order in line has worked well for me in the "butting" issue or the "fighting to be last" problem. When I needed to do this early in a year, I used paper plates and wrote the numbers...

Center Management

Gravity

Any ideas for teaching the concept of Gravity to Kindergarteners? The best one I've heard of so far is to simply say "Gravity!" whenever something in the classroom drops on the floor. Cute idea,...
