Drama Centre

Now that we have had a "bakery" in our classroom for about a month, we decided it was time for a change. The students gave us suggestions for the drama centre, and then they were each given the opportunity to vote for the idea that they liked the best. The results are in, and the bakery is now becoming a McDonald's Restaurant. We have begun working with the students to make the necessary changes--- sorting foods, moving furniture, hanging signs. The students were very excited to see that we have actual cups and food wrappers from McDonald's for them to use. We are excited to see the math and language skills that develop from this new drama centre.

In addition to McDonald's, we have created a living room for dramatic arts.  The students have babies to care for, feed, and cuddle.  Other accessories for the students to incorporate in playful learning are baby clothing, a change table, two rocking cradles, and a push buggy.
