I teach 17 preschool students with disabilities. These students all have varying degrees of communication delays. This year my students have particularly enjoyed playing in the block center building elaborate creations. The fact that they are being mini-architects is not what excites me (although they do build some awesome creations). It is that they are doing these creations together and communicating with each other while they are doing it! The amount of talking they are doing to each other while building has motivated me to increase my block supply, which will hopefully keep increasing their language skills. I am asking for four sets of blocks to enhance our block center. Who knows what they will build next!
