I am in my sixth year teaching kindergarten and absolutely LOVE what I do. I am so inspired by all of the wonderful teachers and their great ideas in "Blogland", I am hoping that I can give back :).

Dramatic Play????

It's almost like a thing of the past! Do you have time for dramatic play in your classroom??? If so, how often do your kids get to do "free choice centers"?? I try so hard to make time for dramatic play each week! I am so lucky to have a full-time Teaching Assistant, and because of her, THIS has happened:

An amazing parent of a student donated some props :)

Don't forget to check in ;)

How cute is this?!  My teaching assistant is AMAZING! 

My class LOVES this part :)

The lanyards are labeled with ticket agent, pilot, and flight attendant :)

Place your luggage here :)

Anyways, I really want to make sure I incorporate a new dramatic play theme every few weeks.  What are some fun dramatic play themes you have tried?!

Ready for take off!


  1. Love this so much! Really, dramatic play is such a great way to incorporate everything they're learning, but it is so time consuming. I wish I lived by you so I could come volunteer with your darlings!

  2. Thanks so much friend!!!!!! It is SO important :) A big part of National Board was "advocating for play in the classroom"....and I will of course because my kids love it so much AND it really helps improve literacy skills! I do too :( I think a visit is in order...I promise I won't put you to work :)
