What sort of dressing-up clothes do you have?
I can send you some picture/ word matching cards, board games and posters if you let me know what phonics you are covering at the moment. I also have posters for some tricky words.
How about an author area- we have one with a display of mini books of different types zig zag just folded, 4 page stapled and coloured cover and plain paper inside- the chidlren are able to choose a mini book from the stand and write their own book using props from the current literacy focus- We have a sign which asks who will be an author and illustrator today?
Ours is very popular the children put the completed books in a basket so they can be read at the end of the day.
Mags - that would be great if you could. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Inky - we have a range of princess, toy story, fairy tale characters, skeletons, pirates etc - things that have been picked up from car boots. plus a large selection of accessories including hats and shoes. It is a well resourced area, just not used well.
Love the idea of an author area, and is definitely something that I wil do once the children are more confident in their writing and understanding of books! Thank you!
Any other ideas?
