Wooden blocks come alive with faces of Day Nursery children
Day Nursery IU Health Preschool 3 teacher Ms. Tomi Lessaris is already using some information she received last Saturday in our day-long Summer Institute training. One of the ideas she got during the Reggio-inspired environment session was to use photos of the actual children in the classroom attached to wooden blocks. These blocks can be used by the children to play, pretend, and develop language skills throughout their learning centers. These ‘block people’ give the children relative people to play with rather than plastic, painted figures that could be store bought.
