The next science unit the children will explore is movement and motion. While the children study these concepts Gloria is introducing Chinese transportation vocabulary. Kerry has been playing with the children daily and helping them to build a multitude of layouts. He has encouraged the kids to use problem solving skills as well as teamwork to accomplish this task. The end result is a great layout in which to play that wholly engages the children.
The trains are a part of our new updated block center which will continually be added to throughout the year. We took an inventory of what we had and then put ads on Craigslist to find more Brio trains and accessories. I’m sure there will be a great layout around the children’s Christmas tree this year!
I would encourage parents to look at this inspiring blog to get ideas for playing with your children at home. Wooden Track Mind
