Our buddy class for the year is...Room 17!
We noticed that there were a lot of sisters/brothers and cousins in this class so it didn't take long to get to know one another.
To build friendships and problem solving skills, I set a task where the children had to work together to create a structure to catch a falling ball.
They were only allowed to use 6 bendy straws and a strip of tape.
It was interesting to see how some drew a design, others discussed ideas and some groups experimented with the materials right away.
We will continue to work on these next time our buddies come to see us.
