Lorena & Penny
Under Construction-Emergent Curriculum
I'd like to thank our neighbors for rebuilding their home. Their timing could not have been better. Only yesterday, Jaron, age 4 piped up with this gem-"I'm only coming to Penny Lane because of the construction." Thank you Jaron. You are correct to hold me responsible for recognizing your curiosity and desire to learn. And so, we make our way, sometimes 3 times a day, sometimes more, to check on the progress of the house construction. The crew have been amazing, sometimes inviting us inside the green fence. We are, thanks to this construction, more aware of our surroundings. At any given moment throughout the day, even the two and a half year old will look up with a knowing smile when the builders are hammering. We have been inspired by the tools, noise, mystery and potential danger of the "Construction Project".
