Thank you for this artcle!I am a literacy coach for my district and a primary grade teacher. I am seeing too many kindergarten classrooms that are ignoring the developmental needs of their children. Play and pretending are no longer part of the curriculum and learning of young children. As a result of my observations, I have become an advocate for keeping developmentally appropriate centers in kindergarten.
