Today we enjoyed more storytelling. In family time I told the story of “The Three Billy Goats Gruff.” We watched the story on you tube. It had a different twist. Then we went outside for THREE HOURS. I thought I would facilitate some play based on our story but guess what ??! Your brilliant littles did not need me.
They built the bridge from loose parts.
They started playing out the story. It was interesting to me that there were no fights. Two trolls ? Ok ! 🤷🏻♀️
Not only were they immersed in pretend play and storytelling but think about the math in this story. Think about the problem solving to make a bridge that could hold a goat or two. Think about the Social and emotional growth as they figured out who did what. and …. It happened all over our outdoor classroom.
If I get to the end of the year and they don’t need me I’ve done my job well. ❤️
