At centers, we have been busy participating in purposeful play -
we have been participating in learning centers
that resemble community helpers.
For example, in the writing center, we have been working at the "PreK Post Office" as we identify and/or match letters, and write letters.
At the dramatic play center we have been taking turns
playing in "Gray's Grocery Store".
In the reading center, we have been reading about various community helpers, such as Sesame Street's "People In Your Neighborhood".
And at the block center, we have been playing with community helpers, while also dressing up as various community helpers.
