Literacy in the Block Area: Pigeon Construction Company

This photo from a kindergarten classroom is the result of a collaboration between my teacher-friends Sara and Ellen.  You can see how this construction area would welcome any young builder.  They have some of the following tools available to kids so their play in this area is full of planning, revising, language, and cooperation:

  • Caution tape.
  • Blueprints.
  • Construction books.
  • A construction worker mentor in Pigeon from the Mo Williams books.
  • Blocks.
  • Sanding paper.
  • Construction tools safe for kindergarten students like hard hats, tape measures, and levelers.
  • Paper and pencils for planning and revising.
