Use this kit to turn your housekeeping center into a Christmas gift wrap shop, called Santa's Workshop! The materials in this kit include wall decorations, signs, gift tags, Christmas cards, thank you notes and so much more! (Check out the preview for a full list of things that are included.)
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, rules, cards, and gift wrap orders
*writing a Christmas wish list, cards, and gift tags
*writing thank you notes
The order slips are provided in a variety of formats to match the reading/writing requirements to the current needs of your students. This kit also has role play name tags for the gift shop employees, store signs, and cover/pages for two class books.
I have also added suggestions for creating and 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 gift wrap materials.
Everything in this kit will help your dramatic play Santa's Workshop run smoothly, while encouraging your students to extend the learning they are already doing in your classroom!
