Ocean Block Play

This week the children reminded me of the incredible value of providing materials for block play.   With each change of theme – I like to put out new cloth and items related to our stories.  I put out blue fabric for water, green for earth and brown as well.  I had an assortment of sea creatures that I added.

This is what one group of boys created earlier in the week.  It was such a wonderful cooperative play moment and they literally created a world with the materials.

Adding materials to block play and keeping it fresh and related to the classroom conversations provides a whole new level of play experience.  I love to listen to their conversations as they “play” out what we have been learning.  It is pure gold.
