Setting the Stage for the Holiday

It is always fun to add seasonal things to the learning centers to help set the stage for learning fun.
This teacher added a fun hand print fire place to her dramatic play area.  Along with pillow and Santa hats so that the children could pretend that they are reading one of Santa’s favorite stories. 
This teacher brought in an artificial tree and placed it in her reading area.  The children have created all the ornaments for it.  This made her book area warm and inviting for the children to sit down and read one of their favorite books.
Ornaments on the tree are sandpaper people and painted pine cones with glitter.

  1. I love that the children made all the decorations for the tree and I really like the idea of giving the children sandpaper to draw on. What a wonderful sensory and literacy experience!
