The Instructional Learning Environment in a play-based Kindergarten has three critical learning phases: Whole Group Instruction where the teacher links the instructional purpose of various lessons to the current unit of study/standards using gradual learning release of “I do (model new learning), We do (use students to model the new learning), You do (give time for students to practice often through Turn-n-Learn application). Learning Center Instruction is where students apply their knowledge and productively work with other students to build fluency and flexibility in key learning concepts. Independent Learning/Choice Centers is where the teacher can work individually to support learners while all students get customized ways to extend their learning through a variety of modalities with their peers. All three phases of early learning instruction are focused on the “learning tasks requiring students to engage intellectually, to think; some may involve productive struggle” (Cluster 4: Student Intellectual Engagement 2b/3a/3b/3c).
