When he played outside, he found all the construction vehicles in the yard and mimicked what he saw them doing outside and in books. He filled dump trucks with bark chips and filled the bucket in an excavator with sand. He drove a garbage truck around yard and collected all sorts of items to put into it. When a dump truck came by to visit next door, he was very excited and wanted to see everything it was doing. Every day his fascination about construction vehicles grows.
Books help us come together as a group and connect with each other through the books we are looking at.
During story time each child loves pointing out what they see. Sometimes it can be difficult to remain sitting down as each person eagerly points things out in the book, but it is good practice to learn what it looks like to be part of a group and do things as a group. This is also great practice for taking turns talking and waiting for a person to stop talking before speaking and contributing to the discussion. Through books we can connect on a deeper level as a group and learn more about each other too!
