While we make structures, vehicles, forts and whatever their imagination holds, we also prepare all week for making individual student videos with a story line (which hopefully includes a plot).
All the parts needed for their video must fit into each child's container- with the lid on!. Try telling an 8 year old that the project he has worked on for 6 hrs smashed into pieces because someone knocked it off the table. And the person who knocked it off the table was the teacher. Oh no...not me... ;)
The Lego bricks were not sorted at all. Only "guys and accessories" were in a different bin.
After the movie viewing party on the last day the kids built cars to race on the track I had built.
All quilters know will what the green tracks are! My rotary cutter mats turned over with blue painters tape. Necessity is the mother of invention!
