Use this kit to turn your dramatic play center into a birthday party! The kit includes signs, wall-hangings, invitations, thank-you notes and more. These materials allow your students to apply their budding reading, writing and math skills while they play!
Not only will your students practice their social skills and organizational skills, they will also have the opportunity to apply academics as they play:
-reading the signs and wall hangings (happy birthday, please put presents here, etc.)
-using the words on the shelf labels during clean-up
-writing invitations, cards, and thank you notes (available in color and black-and-white)
This kit also has role play name tags for the birthday child and guests, a colorful birthday banner, a birthday bingo game and more! Your students can even make two books about birthdays - one stating the month of their birthday and another telling their age.
I have also added suggestions for organizing your dramatic play area in ways that will help students to be independent while using it and during clean-up! A key part of this organization is shelf labels with words and pictures - indicating where to place everything for easy clean-up.
Finally, the kit includes two related math centers/activities: cards to sequence the months of the year, and a matching game to practice counting candles and identifying the matching numeral.
Everything in this kit will help your birthday dramatic play center run smoothly, while encouraging your students to extend the learning they are already doing in your classroom!
