The children helped us to gather materials, and make necessary props for the play when needed.
Because we are really encouraging children to engage in reading and writing for an authentic purpose, we have focused on the necessary literacy activities in which a principal might engage throughout the day. Here it our principal's desk.
Lots of writing materials are included in our office including blank paper, cue cards, special 'principal stationary', class lists, attendance folders, good news visit slips, late slips, phone message forms, and certificates for children who visit the office.
As children continue to express interest in this center, more materials will be added to support their reading, writing, and oral language abilities. We are excited by our children's enthusiasm for this center and can't wait to see what else they do in it!
