have the student work together to pitch a tent in the classroom. afterward assign a process essay: & to pitch a tent.& leave the tent up for dramatic play- but put & on the floor with camp stools instead. Battery lanterns in the tent are a big hit too :)
We set up a dramatic play center that focuses on the outdoors, camping and fishing. We are incorporating literacy by encouraging them to write "postcards from camp" and by fishing for magnetic sight word fish. For dramatic play next year?
