Ok! Now our houses change an appearance! And than farer couple children improve their houses, than more children want to make their own! We decided to discuss with children their choices: why they choose this or that building. But today we just pick up boxes and cut, cut cut them...
Tree with squirl , future "Sabrina's restorant"
Discussion about doors and windows.
That how our village looks now, but usually on Friday children pick up their works, so up to Friday we should finish a couple houses!
We finished our project at the middle of April. The best part was to organize our houses on the landscape.
Children enjoyed doing that work!
They discussed who going to live in our village and they enjoyed making people and animals for it.
This is short photo stream of our project:
Winter village project
This project started before Christmas and continued for over four months. During this project children learned many new and improved their existing skills. We covered all areas of the children's development including Music, Math and Writing.
Also, by working together children improved their social skills, they learned how to work on their own and share their knowledge and help their friends. During those months children made great growth of their personal, social and cognitive skills. They still did not lose interest to work on this project.
We continue connect some of our not finished activity to other projects and just let them play with Winter Village.After Art Show at the end of the school year we are going to cut landscape in pieces and every child will take home his or her own "land with the house and surroundings".
