Building and Storytelling

The children continue to build new structures each day.   Garages for cars, train stations, secret hideouts for the turtles, castles for the superheroes, flying cars, homes for people… The list goes on.   With each building their structures get more complex and they run out of the material they started with.   They problem solve by bringing in other building materials when the blocks run out.

As their building develops so does their storytelling.   They tell stories with each other about the trains, cars, animals… blocks and Legos continue to be a favorite material to use for storytelling.   Stories are emerging with magnet characters of the billy goats and Goldilocks.   The children are combining these favorite characters to tell their own versions of the stories.   We have started to explore intentional painting of our stories and telling stories in sand and snow!
