Today's Topic: Blocks + Playdough, outreach edition!
The three little wolves and the big bad pig / Trivizas, Eugenios
Los Tres Cerditos by Ana Lomba (scroll down to find a recording) using this piggie pattern
What the kids actually did:
built houses, tried to blow them down:
counting chunks of playdough is also fun!

The teachers loved this assignment! They talked about doing it again on their own with the class and kept exclaiming about how they'd never though of combining playdough and blocks, but what rich play the kids did with those materials! The kids enjoyed it too. I think some of them engaged with this project for more than 45 minutes.
