Sometimes I provide a provocation, to promote interest in the area, but most of the time their creations are developed in their minds long before they remove a block from the shelf.
We often see them combining multiple types of blocks and/or blocks with other materials.
|This little one used the magnatiles to house our cork friends.|
I had taken a photo of each child and adhered them to a
cork. The kids use them for all kinds of adventures.
|Love how the kids|
posed the dolls

"I'm queen of the hill!!"
|Unit blocks, color blocks, beaded blocks|
|Unit blocks and bamboo blocks|
|Unit blocks, tree blocks, foam forms we use as "caves" for|
the woodland creatures
Sometimes we see them using them to count or to "set" things in motion.
Then there are the times when it's an amazing confidence booster.
|After building with the brick blocks|
this friend placed his "cork friend" on
the top and announced, "Look how
tall I am!"
