Our class is busy playing to learn everyday! We are currently working on our restaurant unit. During our make believe play time we have several different restaurants set up. The children enjoy working and dining in a fancy restaurant, Pizza Hut, McDonalds and a deli. Each day they draw and write about what they will do in the restaurant that they choose to play in. After finishing their play plan, they go to that particular restaurant and execute the activity that they wrote about. It is a fun filled learning time that incorporates so many of the academic skills we are working on. For instance, they children use their phonics skills as they write lists, take orders, take phone messages, etc. They use number recognition as they read and follow recipes. They use group making skills to fill orders and find seats for customers. They children really enjoy this make believe play time and learn so many things all while they are doing what they love to do the best.....PLAY!!!
We are currently in need of quart size zip-lock bags and paper towels. If you are able to send in one of these items, we would really appreciate it!
Thanks so very much. :)
