I have been excited to start this theme of buildings, since I have 13 boys.
One little boy carried this fire station around all during center time because his dad works there. So make multiples if you want to encourage sharing.
My classroom is lacking car, trucks, or anything with wheels. This will not do, so I made vehicles the same way I made the building blocks. Luckily, there was some construction vehicles right outside my house this week. Target and Dollar tree supplied me with the other vehicles with wheels for $1 each.
I asked each child "What type of building do you live in?" Just a little hint. Don't right your name up on the chart first or you will have everyone living in the same type of building that you do. Luckily in Head Start, we do home visits, so my aide knew which type of building they all lived in. So, now back to describing different types of buildings. It would have been better if I had real pictures of buildings.
