Your students will LOVE this center. Students choose a McDonald's Happy Meal toy and write a story about it, or write a description about the toy.
Before you start this center, make the rules very clear. I tell my students that they choose whichever toy they want, but they have to stick with that choice. I remind them that they are toys, but they are not for play for this center! If you do this as a weekly center (I often do) tell your students to try and pick a different toy that what they have previously picked.
*If you don't already have a collection of McDonald's toys, send home the attached parent letter asking for donations of Happy Meal toys!
