During the past two weeks, children have explored building using different materials. In particular, we observed many creative structures being built with the letter blocks and straw connectors. N has incorporated dramatic play into his creation.
N: “I am building a town with my blocks. They have cool shapes so the rock people will be happy.”
The straw connectors allowed the children to make 3D shapes that were larger than anything they had been building prior. Many children decided to make houses, or big boxes. S is building a chimney to sit at the top of the house he created.
S: “The chimney is where the smoke comes out. That’s why it has to be at the top of the house so the smoke goes in the sky.”
