This week we began our study on buildings. We went around our school building and observe special features about our school building such as: numbers, letters, shapes of the roof, how many windows, doors and playgrounds. The children drew pictures of their house, created shapes with playdough, used wood sticks to make a house and they used paint to paint different types of buildings. We transformed our dramatic area into a construction site. The children explored different tools, created structures with blocks and drew pictures of buildings. At science table, the children built with cups. We learned about balance and strong foundation. At blocks, the children continue to create amazing structures. We added books about buildings around the world and the children are exploring them and created their representation. We read The Three Little Pigs and the children loved it!
