The girls love playing in the creative areas of the classroom where they can create some wonderful stories through their amazing imaginations. Here are some conversations and pictures of the girls as they play together and "build" stories that we can capture as we listen to the delightful conversations they are having with each other. The lego table and the doll house were great examples of their creative thought processing and so much fun to observe.
-Working together collaboratively
-Sharing background information
-Creativity with telling a story
