DRAMATIC PLAY-Fairy-Tale Forest

Standard

For the month of January and February our dramatic play center is a: FAIRY-TALE FOREST

This is a new theme for us and I’m very excited to see how the group responds. I’ve noticed that many of the children I have in my group are not familiar with a lot of the old school fairy tales in general so I am planning on introducing them all month long.

Great article to read on  “How Dramatic Play Can Enhance Learning”:
