In our class, we provide environments that encourage and enhance problem solving.
It is for this reason that we often incorporate block play into our curriculum.
Block play encourages a child to test spatial relationships and mentally rotate objects in the mind’s eye.
Such practice might lead kids to develop superior spatial abilities.
Within the story of the Little Red Hen, we are introduced to a mother hen and her chicks.
We spent much of this week discussing chickens and how they are raised.
This activity involved creating a chicken coop for our little red hen and her chicks!
