    For older children, serve and return can be incorporated in the classroom, initially, through conversation and observation. It is the job of the teacher to learn about the different topics that my students are interested in. I have to be aware of what information and resources they are “serving” me. In return, I can incorporate activities that build on these topics and interests. For example, if I observe that many of my students are interested in animals, I can lead a circle that incorporates an animal matching game, animal dance, and animal themed book.
