oh, how i wish model magic was more affordable! since it isn’t, our friday class was the group to sculpt transportation.
we named the colors, counted together as i cut them apart (since that couldn’t be done ahead of time in fear of it hardening), then gave each child a plate of pieces. there were toothpicks and googly eyes (so our transportation vehicles might look like the ones in richard scarry books!)
i didn’t sense frustration as i watched them sculpt, mimic each other, or go new directions.
introducing transportation by the friday class:
i wish i had recorded the names of their transportation vehicles. i know there were ships, boats, cars, trucks, vans, airplanes, rockets, trains…and some creatively named vehicles!
