Preschoolers at Play! lets children use prior knowledge to act out personal experiences. This type of play develops children's social skills, cognitive development, problem-solving abilities, and communication by involving them in familiar dramatic play themes. Your preschoolers will love becoming airplane pilots, beauticians, construction workers, farmers, firefighters, bakers, and more as they engage in these dramatic play activities.
Each lesson begins with a list of roles for play scenarios and props, reading and writing props, and print labels that are appropriate in that lesson environment. The lists provide the basics for setting up the play scene. A sample introduction allows you to embed explicit language instruction in each theme to include prepositions, pronouns, adjectives, and verbs. The lesson plan also presents a list of vocabulary words for the teacher to model, an alphabet focus for two to three letters, beginning sounds, related literature, and implementation ideas. 122 pages.
