Home centers are getting kicked out of more and more classrooms. As a result, many kids are being depleted of valuable play time in the classroom. When I was teaching, I loved creating station activities for the home center in our classroom. And learners enjoyed spending time playing while they learned. This gingerbread syllable sorting center is perfect for a home center activity.
Dramatic play is a huge part of learning. As a result, learners get to practice social skills and oral language while exploring real-life scenarios. Providing time for learners to enjoy the home center unstructured is important. However, having structured learning activities available is important, too.
Making the home center themed for the holidays is so fun. Chances are the classroom is already decked out for Christmas. Therefore, why not add a little pizzaz in the home center?
For literacy stations, we like to review skills through the year. That is why this syllable sort is perfect for the home station.
