Gingerbread person hunt
Submitted by Karen
In order to familiarize you students with their new classroom (or new school) read the gingerbread man poem and then go on a hunt for the gingerbread man. Hide a gingerbread man in the last room and have it for snack. If you are just doing this within your classroom create gingerbread feet for your children to follow. Have the feet lead to your special treat

Grocery Store Dramatic Play Area
Submitted by Tina
Create a grocery store in your classroom.
  • Set up grocery store shelves (you can use existing bookshelves, boxes, etc) in your classroom (Use real or play food)
  • To make a conveyor belt, loop black paper around a table and tape the ends together (tape one end of the paper to the other end) the paper will roll just like a conveyor belt.
  • Add a cash register to the end of the table to complete the effect.
  • To make grocery carts use large boxes with all the flaps (except the narrow end) tucked into the box. Use the narrow end flaps as the handle. For added emphasis your children can cut and glue on silver metallic paper or aluminum foil.- you can also use any cart you have around the classroom
  • Grocery Bags, ask local grocery stores to donate grocery bags (paper) to your class
