B.T. and N.S. began to build a base using the large hollow blocks. When the tower was above their heads the educator let them know, it was “too tall”, as she was worried it might fall and hurt someone. The boys than began to add smaller blocks to their structure checking they were balanced and not too high. T.E. and G.V. became interested in what was happening, joining with B.T. and N.S. adding more blocks. When some blocks fell the boys worked together, rebuilding and restructuring the tower ensuring it was stable and safe. As educators we enjoy capturing moments like this. It demonstrated to us the children’s confidence in themselves and how comfortable they are in our environment.
