We brought some boxes into the classroom.  Sometimes a box can be a quiet space to retreat to. Sometimes a box can be a spot to play peek-a-boo.  Sometimes a box can be a house or car.  What seemed particularly interesting in the play that occured were the moments where the children were connecting with one another.
