My son has been taught through the use of learning centers since Kindergarten. He has been more challenged this year than he was in the past two years utilizing the centers as instructed by his teacher. Center time is now being used to socialize with peers and engage in activities other than classroom assignments. He is passing but he is not progressing, his teacher says that it is due to his inability work independently while at the centers. He then brings home unfinished classroom and additional homework assignments that he completes independently without the use of a learning center.
