This can be a collective presentation.


Directress invites all the children to sit on a chair, listen and watch carefully. Directress then explains the definition and steps of a work cycle:

Step 1:
Child selects a place to work, either on the table or the floor.  If the selected work place is the floor, the child gets a floor mat and lays it down on the floor. If the selected work place is a table, the child lays the felt cloth on the table.

Step 2: Child selects a material to work with and carries the material to the selected work place and places the material on the floor mat or table mat.

Step 3: Work on the materials in the working area.

Step 4: When completed, the child to takes the materials back to its place on the shelf so that others may work on it. The child then rolls up the floor mat or folds up the table mat and returns it to its place.
