In Pre-K the children are showing interest in buildings and creating structures to represent their ideas. We noticed that children are driven to create buildings such as homes, castles, and buildings that their parents work in using magna tiles and blocks.
Based on children’s interest we took them out on a neighborhood walk to see what buildings are there in the neighborhood. Children observed the structure of the building and we talked about what we noticed such as shapes and any distinct features that stands out. Children also sketched their noticings onto the clipboards.
