What can we turn this circle into?

What can it be?

Before the Christmas holidays, the children were bringing circles into their play, we wanted to see where their thinking was now, and if it changed over the break.The circle prompt created some interesting ideas for our group to expand on together…

It’s going to be a girl! A princess!”

The children were sharing ideas that represented a familiar story…. and we saw how the circle suddenly had many characters surrounding it and sparked a new idea for our play! Our circle became a princess who was sad, because she missed her mom and she was trapped in a castle by a witch! In order to foster the children’s love for storytelling and script making, we added some props to our room. Incorporating their characters into our program in different areas will allow the children freedom to engage with their peers in dramatic play!
