Studio Habit of Mind: Stretch and Explore is a great way to open centers in the TAB classroom. I have used this strategies for the past three years when I open centers. Stretch and Explore is when artists experiment and explore. It fits nicely in letting students explore materials and learn classroom expectations. I let my students just focus on trying and touch all the materials. It gives me a chance to really teach other regular classroom expectations.
I just opened my TeacherspayTeachers store.
There is a Stretch and Explore Bundle found here.
