I am a Reggio Emilia inspired Full Day Kindergarten teacher and mother to three young children. This blog is meant as a communication tool for the families of our children and as a learning tool for the many educators who follow us. Please feel free to comment on posts and participate in our collective understanding of emergent curriculum.
Today during one of our circle time discussions, Mrs. Bombardier and the children talked about how some families cut down a fresh Christmas tree. The children were interested in learning how those families transported the tree back to their houses. During play time, Mrs. Bombardier added some miniature trees to our block center.
The children were drawn to the trees and immediately began to attach them to our toy cars and trucks so they could be delivered to people's houses.
Some children also made houses too!
Check out the sign that one of our children wrote - trees for sale!
