Our primary classrooms are full of beautiful materials that are available for exploration and learning. Children in this stage of development have an “absorbent mind” and learn to read, write, complete advance math operations and achieve a high level of understanding their world through individual lessons offered by their teachers and by continually observing others in the classroom. It is typical for a classroom to experience successive “explosions” of reading or math activities, as one child’s interests ignites those of her friends. It is not uncommon to see one group after another reading, writing counting to 100, or practicing multiplication tables within a few weeks of each other.
