We use the block interest area to develop social skills by building together as a team, discussing what we are creating. We also practice math skills by counting how many blocks we may need for a particular structure.
We use the dramatic play area to work on social and cognitive skills by negotiating roles, acting out parts, and using our imagination.
The sand & water area uses props, such as measuring cups, spoons, sifters, and shovels, which encourages scientific exploration. By making careful observations, measuring, and classifying, we enhance our math skills.
