Here the children use collaboration, cooperation and turn taking as H and A use the loose parts displayed on the table to build a tower. The two girls sit parallel to one another H begins to stack the first couple objects. A adds the next spool and it becomes an intricate work of art. Together they work diligently and carefully to place the loose parts on top of each other so they don’t fall. They appear to use body language and minimal words during this activity. When it eventually falls they laugh and try buildig again. We have been able to observe the children use collaboration and other social skills such as descriptive language to express their wants, needs and knowledge.
What a beautiful organic bonding moment for these two children.
