check out our castle for FAIRY TALE week! The kids did so great labeling all the things! I picked up the brick and stone papers at a local teacher supply store!
Take a look at this STEM activity! I just created a castle with magnetic tan gram pieces, traced them with a sharpie on the white board and then bagged up the correct pieces, numbered the bag and the board, then put them out as a challenge! The kiddos did great!

Welcome to School Dramatic Play!
The students really enjoyed getting to "ride the bus" to school. It is simply to chairs wrapped in yellow paper with an opening on the side that is not visible. This allows for the students to climb right aboard the bus and take a ride! Inside the cabinets, there are manipulative's for the "teacher" to hand out to the students. There are also storybooks, journals and a dry erase board for the students to work from. I have a felt calendar that mimics the large group activity we do each day with calendar and weather. And the learning mats with fine motor activities and shape identification were a huge hit! The students all had "role" cards to wear, so that taking turns being the teacher was a little more manageable. This was a one week dramatic play center. The students enjoyed it, but there was not enough to keep them busy for a full 2 weeks! LIVE AND LEARN, right friends? :)
Below is one of my MOST FAVORITE dramatic play transformations! We always have a huge Bakery Unit in February and this year was no exception! I did make a change in 2018 though, I printed the adorable Bakery Dramatic Play set from the wonderful Jennifer Horner's TPT store! Check out all of her items! She does some amazing stuff!
