I Have A New Center This Year

The Building Center

Last year this area of my room was just a general toy center. However, this summer my brilliant technological and engineering minded husband gave me a great idea. Why not give the children a challenge and rename the center the "Building Center". I tried it out for the first time this week. The challenge I gave the children was to build a "castle" and they all did really well. They worked together better and their playing was more directed. I loved it! Now I just have to figure out what challenge I should give them next week.
