Use this kit to turn your housekeeping center into a pretend school for your students! The kit includes everything a pretend teacher needs: books and poems to "read aloud," a page for lesson planning, a daily schedule, calendar pieces, behavior certificates and more!
The materials in this kit will allow your students to have fun playing school while still applying their budding reading, writing and math skills during play time.
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 books and poems to the class
*reading the daily schedule
*writing lesson plans
*writing good behavior certificates
*doing the calendar (counting, shapes, etc.)
*practicing shape flashcards
This kit also has role play name tags for the teacher and students, pages for class lists, an alphabet chart, and a cover/pages for a class book.
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 the pretend school materials.
Finally, the kit includes shape sorting cards and a related practice page - perfect for an academic center! Everything in this kit will help your pretend school center run smoothly, while encouraging your students to extend the learning they are already doing in your classroom!
