Class Differences

We love to see how different kids will approach the same toys!  In this case, the first photo shows our Threes classmates working together to put the pegs in the holes.  Their main goal is to fill each hole in no particular order and will little organization - although they did choose to dump all the pegs out onto the table and put the box on the floor.  The Threes kids tend to like to see all their materials at once!

In the second photo, this Pre-kindergarten student is using the same toy but with a different approach.  He has the boards lined up in order, he's counting the pegs as he puts them in and he's left the rest of the pegs in the box.
Both photos show progress towards a goal and all 3 kids are learning important skills whether they know it or not! :)
