The block area has a bunch of trinkette type treasures for the children to add to their building structures. Today we talked about being intentional with materials and counting out how many we need instead of dumping them all out. This supports the children in counting and really thinking about what they need while exploring these materials. Cassidy S. used wood blocks and made a circle. Then Sam M. added the gems to go inside the circle. They said it was a pool and the big dinosaurs were protecting the baby dinosaurs. After that the children began to add these trinkettes as little accent pieces to their buildings!
