Do you believe that all common core standards are developmentally appropriate?
I am concerned that some of the things we may be asking kindergarteners to do are actually not appropriate for their age. I see so many of the exploratory activities(water and sand tables, block building corners, paint, learning of nursery rhymes, etc) that are important for building background knowledge disappearing from kindergarten classes and the joy of learning is being replaced with scripted modules. How do teachers best address these concerns in this new era of common core standards?
