Cards for block center

Challenge cards for block play. I remember having these types of blocks with just the outline of the finished shape, and having to figure it out. Loved it! Perfect for the kindergarten lesson

Photos of the children / staff for use in small world play / construction.

I took this at Cuyamaca College at their Child Development Center on campus. They have developed the center into a Reggio Emilio center.

Need to get some pics of local buildings and architecture to laminate and put in the block area for kids to build instead of just building "houses & castles".

Awesome block center idea!

To expand upon this, the kids create a matching book with a picture of their structure (and their written description complete with labels,etc). You could also use a story telling app--creating a digital book to document and write about their work.

Love this-A book with photos of real buildings and bridges-Can You Build This?....also could add photos of children's structures...even do a class book-Look What We Built !

Community Helpers theme unit: Can you build it? Book with real buildings and pictures of block constructions. Perfect way to integrate math and literacy into the block center!

Paper Bag City from Craft Gossip. Oh I can just hear my preschool students now! And the possibilities are endless...Halloween Village, Gingerbread Houses, Community Helpers, etc. Fun!~Trisha:)

Such a simple and awesome idea ---- Dramatic Play Time! Make a Pretend City with Paper Bags.each child could make a different building and then you could display it in the classroom
