Centertime

During this time of day, I am learning responsibility.
I have to record each center that I complete on my name tag.
I must mark out my name on the center checklist.
My job is to help clean up when my teacher sings the clean-up song.
"Clean-up time is here again, here again, here again.
Clean-up time is here again, it's clean-up time again.
Put your toys and blocks away, games away, puzzles away.
Put your dishes and books away.
It's clean-up time once more."

PET CENTER

Feeding the fish helps me to learn responsibility and to care for others.

A hermit crab needs very little care, but be sure that he always has water.  He is very quiet during the day.
