PreK Book#2 – Dreaming up

I recently discovered Dreaming Up.

Each page displays a building from around the world on the right, and a reproduction of it by children on the left, using various materials such as legos, wooden blocks, sticks, sand, etc. The parallel between architecture and children’s constructions provides meaningful support to engage young children with mathematics. Look at the building — what do you notice /see ? What do you wonder / what questions do you have? What repeats? Look at the child’s construction — what looks the same? what looks different? What shapes of blocks did they use? How many?
