Forming a line is hard work! We are practicing every day. We line up for the bathroom, we line up to wash hands for snack and we line up when we come in from outside. We do have some tools to help our line making. One of them our sensory wall that children can touch and explore while waiting in line. Another tool is our “jump up song”, which we use to slowly excuse children to wash hands for lunch so that the line doesn’t get too long. Still…it is hard. We decided to have a circle dedicated to the world of line forming.
What is a line? Why do we have a line? Where do you join a line? How do you join a line? What happens if you leave the line? How can we make it more fun to be in a line?
