The students made an "apartment" for the ponies!
This straw connector building set is great! The children have started making huge structures from it. They have started using paper and cardboard to make "floors", and are experimenting with ways to make the structures less "tippy". This is when having only one class (i.e. a morning class or an afternoon class -- or a full day class) would come in handy because the morning class will work on something and then the afternoon will take it apart (or vice versa). Sometimes we try to "save" things to work on, but sometimes this isn't feasible! As you likely know, full day Kindergarten comes to Earl Beatty in September 2012. This will definitely help when the children ask "Can we save it?"
