Since returning from our February break, the kids have been working on building a town. This has involved creating a road, as well as other buildings to add to our town. We've also been using pictures of familiar places in our block area. As children engage in this work, they have been working on representing their ideas symbolically. Their knowledge of themselves in relationship to their world is being refined and expanded as they think about the different locations in their town, and what people do there and how they work together. In addition, children have also been working on spatial concepts, measuring, and other math concepts as they create buildings. We are excited to continue to put together our town in the play room over the coming weeks. What locations do you like to visit in your town? We would love for you to send us pictures of some of your favorite places so that we can add them to our work!
