In room 2 we are still continuing our exploring with building. We are learning about building with different materials and the different machines that help build things like houses and tall office buildings. We continue to read books, look at pictures and videos learning how things are put together. We are having exciting time learning and exploring how things are built and will continue to understand as much as needed and build our own houses, and tall buildings.
The children of room 2 at the Gilliate building have taken an interest in firetrucks. So, we went to the fire station! The children explored the perimeter of the building, discussed where the trucks might be, and even found one at the back of the building!
Arriving at the fire station…
De’Asia: We at the firetruck. It in the garage!
Ashlynn: You ring the bell and they come out.
Good theory… let’s try!
Nobody came out. So, who works here?
Ashlynn: The people.
Emoni: I saw the light in there ‘cuz it’s open.
Emoni: It’s a firetruck! *points to police car*
Finding the firetruck…
How did you know?!
Journei: ‘Cuz it’s red!
Emoni: There’s water on there!
De’Asia: So they can clean your car off!
Ashlynn: No, for fire.
De’Asia: I see wheels.
Ashlynn: A ladder!
For the house!
Coryon: For climbing!
Dylan: *makes siren noise*
De’Asia: That on top!
Ashlynn: Yeah, it’s a light!
