We have been wanting to add wood pieces to our loose parts center for a while now. I have been waiting for the weather to dry out so that we could collect some wood to cut up. Once we got the wood, it was just a matter of cutting it up and sanding down the pieces. I even added some wood-burned numbers to some to add some number sense to the pieces.
One of our students did an amazing job at this center and really showed what can be done. This is by far the best use of the loose parts I have seen from our class and we made sure to really pump him up!
