Flexibility in a Time of Uncertainty

Teaching flexibility is a core concept in our Social Learning groups at The Carruth Center, as well as in the classrooms at The Parish School. When I’m teaching flexibility to our youngest learners, I’m as in-decisive as Texas weather. I’ll start by telling the kids that we’re going to play with blocks. The kids get excited and start brainstorming ideas. Then suddenly, I decide we’re going to play with Play-Doh. But gosh, the Play-Doh is too hard! So now, I want to go outside. When the kids catch on that I’ve lost my way and maybe gone a little nuts, they either laugh at my antics or they get frustrated with my inconsistent plans. And then, they’re introduced to my favorite word – the name of the 2020 game – Flexibility.
