Our teachers observed that the children were asking each other what color each crayon was. So they made a table specifically to expand their color and shape interests. The table contained visible shapes taped on, colored shape blocks, and a small book about shapes and colors. The children were all very intrigued with what they saw and used the materials in different ways. Some of them looked through the book and pointed out everything they saw. Others built things with the blocks and counted how many of each same colored blocks they had. All of the children found their own inspiration in the materials provided to create different ideas they had.
