The Box

Ms. Donna recently purchased us a new filing cabinet for our classroom. As much as we appreciated the new cabinet, what was even better was the box that it came in. The children used the box in so many different ways- a cave, a tunnel, a cozy place to take a rest, a dance floor, a drum, a hiding place...the list could go on and on.
