We then went on to write real "letters" (drawn pictures) to put in this mailbox for fellow classmates. We went on walks to document mail boxes, keep and eye out for postal workers -- and even went to the local post office where we got "mail" (free newspapers) for our classroom.
Really, the possibilities became endless.
I now work with one-year-olds, where default “kitchen and baby dolls” dramatic play is more than sufficient. The children are super sweet, and it’s a joy to watch them learn to walk, start talking, start learning how to hold a sippy cup. But I really do miss preschool curriculum, especially things involving transforming dramatic play in accordance to what we are discussing that week.
