We're going on a lion hunt!
The children discovered a basket of binoculars in the Courtyard. Anything worth seeing through two eyes, is much more fun seeing through binoculars!
With imaginations in high gear, they stalked their prey...maybe they could see lions! or tigers! or bears! (oh my!) lurking nearby. Children this age love 'dangerous' themes, so the binoculars became a wonderful prop for their play, and their excitement was contagious.
Fortunately, once they encountered their imaginary predators, bikes were available to make a swift getaway.
Inside the classroom, train play ruled, from assembling the tracks, to attaching the cars and negotiating turns. Chug chug, choo choo, off we go!
