Rowan noticed Sally building a tower with Duplo blocks and went to investigate. He decided to join her, as did several other friends—so many children gathered, that we had to move the table to make room for everyone. Before long, nearly the whole class was involved. It was both exciting to work closely with friends, and challenging to share the blocks so that everyone had access to what they needed to build. The children built lots of towers—separately and together—before moving on to other activities. In the end, Sally had moved on to a different activity but Rowan remained. It was a beautiful example of how the Brown Room children are learning together and influencing each other’s thinking every day.
