It has been months since I've been able to sit down and write a post for my blog. Just last year we moved into a new home and then my Mom fell ill. I've been out of the classroom and thankfully no Center and Circle Time events scheduled. I prepared myself to jump back in when I was a little more stable. Memorial Day is right around the corner and I thought it was the perfect time to get back in the swing of things.
This week I'll be working on Preschool Activities for Memorial Day. Whenever I start a new lesson one of the places I like to start is in my Dramatic Play area because it is one of the busiest centers. Here are a few items to put in your Dramatic Play area for Memorial Day.
Red, white and blue beads
Red, white and blue bandanas
Plastic Patriotic cups, plates, etc
Create a play grill using a card board box
Plastic Barbecue utensils: Spatula, Tongues, etc.
You could also do a picnic theme, or a beach theme to celebrate the holiday as well.
Send me pictures of how you transformed your Dramatic Play area for Memorial Day and I'll add them to this post.
