kindergarten learning environment in which children feel safe, comfortable and
able to take risks. It offers innovative ways to encourage students to explore,
experiment, discover, problem-solve and freely interact with one another. Based
on extensive classroom practice, it demonstrates when teachers need to provide
support, ask questions and provoke thinking, and when to back away and leave
kids to their own devices. This remarkable book is committed to sculpting classrooms
where children can learn and grow as they play.
