The toddlers continue to enjoy building with magnet tiles, we build up and we build flat.  We build on the light table, the rug, the table and the floor.  We stack and build cubes to fill with bears and other small items.  The teachers sometimes display photos of different types of buidlings to inpsire children's building.  If you would liek to send in a photo of your house or another building please send it in. 

Our toddlers engage in dramatic play throughout the classroom, using a variety of materials an props to extend their interest.  The children use sand and "beautiful stuff or loose parts" in their cooking and pretend play.  We also spend time caring for the babies-dressing and undressing them and offering them food.  Dramatic play encourages language development, problem solving and social intercations.
