DEVELOPMENTALLY APPROPRIATE MATERIALS

 

Materials at Smarty Pants are developmentally appropriate; are accessible; promote multiple modes of exploration and learning; reflect children's interests; and support children of all abilities. Here are some examples of materials that are readily accessible and what skills/concepts the students are practicing when they choose these materials.


We hope that at Smarty Pants each student will feel…

  •  this is a good place to be

  •  that this is their classroom

  • that this is a place that they can trust

  • that they can be by themselves if they need to

  • that this is a safe place to try out ideas and explore

  • that they are valued and respected
