As we continue to encourage creativity, the girls are drawn to areas of the clasroom where new provocations quickly get their interest for creating stories through play. This week, the playdough table helped create stories about snowmen and what they might be doing. The Story Workshop table included many loose parts for the girls to imagine and build a story. They loved having winter animals, trees, snowmen, small blocks, pinecones and small cotton balls to play with and "build' stories. A few of them even went to another area of the classroom to find an addtional "loose parts" to add to their story! We were thrilled with the stories that their "thinking" could create and would love to share two of these fun, imaginative stories.
"My story is about the cat, the polar bear, and the penguin. The penguin was sliding into the cat and then another penguin said"hello" to the dog and the dog said she was doing fine and said "hello' too. Then the polar bear came to see everybody. They all started looking at the tree. I'm going to put snowballs on the tree because it is cold! Then they all lined up in a straight line because they want to climb up the tree. Then they all fell out of the tree because they were trying to reach the star on the top! The snowman is laughing at all the animals"!
Another Great Story
"My snowman is going to the store.. He is hungry and wants to get something to eat. He loves to eat toast! He has a purple hat on and a purple nose. His friend is with him and he will eat toast too! When they get home they will play with each other because they are friends. The sun might come out and melt them!!"
