The Napping House blocks. Print outs of the story characters and tapped onto our wood blocks. Very cute idea.
I didn't have a full set of blocks so I couldn't use their template, but I made my own cards to fits the colors/sizes that I did have and it was a HUGE success with our pre-school co-op. My 4 yr old loved playing with them for days after that pre-school lesson and his friends that have come over to play loved it as well.

These rainbow stackers are found in many classrooms but I hardly see children playing with them. This is an interesting twist to these stackers - the mirrors add symmetry and play up the gorgeous shapes and colors.

Learning about trees with wooden train track. My 2.5-year-old was enthralled with the whole process for a good hour and a half, and learning about art, biology, and planning and executing a project the whole time! Plus I had just as much fun with it. Based off of the art installation, "Tree Track", by Christien Meindertsma.

Syren Töreboda Blog: Dep. Bee - " A couple of weeks ago, we asked parents / families in our children's group to take pictures of their houses / homes. Our idea with the pictures was to attach them to building blocks so that the children can use their own and their friends' house in the game." This is the result:" ≈≈

Karen Rucker Commentary - For older children to design their block creation and then build it. Possible documentation would be to have the "my design" sheet and a narrative by either the teacher or the child about why the design was chosen, how it was executed, and any problem solving along the way. Couple this with a photograph of the end product.

When bringing materials into a learning environment think about promoting creativity, diversity, inclusion, environmental sustainability, collaboration and a love nature. Pieces with multiple uses are so valuable in promoting all of these things as well as giving possibilities for diverse types of learning.

Use train tracks as marble tracks - we used a spiral track, and my 4 & 5 yr old grandsons played happily for a long time. We even made "boulders" from playdough and they rolled those down the track. I put the track at the end of the coffee table and a basket on the floor about a foot away. The marbles shot off the track into the basket. Good fun!
