More Animals Hiding

Friday, September 13th

The children continue to show interest in the dinosaurs and animals.  Today we had the rocking boat in our classroom.  We turned it over to make stairs and used the animals on the stairs.  The animals were walking up and down.  Hassan realized he could push the animals through the stairs and make them “hide” under the stairs.  The children joined in and pushed all the animals under the stairs.  Each time they pushed an animal under, they would look at Mrs. Daigneau and say, “Where did it go?”  Hilton realized that if you pushed the animals farther under the stairs you couldn’t see the animals when you peeked in.  This was a great example of perspectives…how do you hide objects so no one can see them when they are looking!
