Light Table Playscape

We have been eager to continue to capitalize on the children's fascination with the new light table. On Friday we set up a mini farm playscape for the children to explore. We hoped that by using farm props, the children would recall various stories we have read so far this year, and use this background knowledge to support their cooperative play ideas. We especially wanted our children to practice their oral language skills, and engage in conversations with one another.

One child added a mud patch for the pigs to use. He looked around the room and decided that brown construction paper would work best.

The horse family decided to walk along the pond so they could get a drink together! Notice how the blue  stones have been placed together to represent water on the light table!
