Happy Friday! Today was truly a day of construction big and small! Some children chose to continue with making their own silhouettes which quickly became a plan for a “shadow city”. They collected several objects from around the classroom that would lend themselves to towers and houses, and traced them on our black silhouette paper. Some even realized that adding two shapes together created the design they wanted.
Others chose to construct using message center materials.
Still, for some, brand new clear legos dominated the day with all kinds of crystalline towers dotting the brick landscape.
Oooh, I like the pink one. See my tower? - Marley
We also took time today to discuss Elle’s box project. She missed our box sharing in the beginning of the year, but has been increasingly interested in the ones she saw in the hallway. Over the weekend, she and her mom worked on putting one together and she shared the process with us today!
I wanted to add moon rocks. These are from mom, you hit them and see the inside. I wanted it to be beautiful so I put pictures with my family. I took the pictures with my camera. - Elle
Have a wonderful weekend!
