Dramatic play is important for young children.
It gives them the opportunity to apply their understanding of concepts and vocabulary they have been introduced to throughout the week.
The world of the Little Red Hen has provided endless opportunities for acquiring language, categorizing and classifying information, comparing and contrasting, and engaging their senses.
Your little one has not only been learning about the story of the Little Red Hen, but, how bread is made, and why bread and grains are imperative for our energy levels.
The social benefits they reap from these interactions continue to play a necessary role in their development, and most importantly, make everyone feel good.
For this activity we made bread with play dough, and used boxes to represent ovens.
We pretended to bake and later eat our bread with our friends!
