A Building Success Story

At the block centre, we have been encouraging our students to draw what they want to create, design and build.  Last week, one of the JK students built a helicopter using the big blocks and planks.  When I asked him about his creation, he showed me the little model helicopter. A few minutes later, I saw him drawing his helicopter on the white board.  He was looking at the shapes of the blocks, naming them, and then began trying to trace them.  His success story was shared with the class, in hope to see more planning and drawing of class structures.
