An observation of a conversation was made between two children who were engaged building in the block area...
Caleb: “Carter I made us a fort come inside!!”
Carter: “It’s dark, no no, I stay out” backing away from the structure.
Caleb spends some time thinking and re-building his structure, and then excitedly exclaims
“Carter!! I added this plastic thingy so like a sky light and now it’s light in there and you won’t be scared!”
Caleb was posed with a challenge and used problem solving skills to help Caleb become more comfortable in the fort!
