My students had a blast pretending to live in a castle!
Since the beginning of the year, many of them were excited to make castles in the blocks area during their choice time. So I jumped on the theme as a way to teach some of our academic goals. I was inspired by Mrs. Meyers Kindergarten, who also did a castle unit with her kindergarteners.
Of course they needed medieval costumes, so the kids made princess hats and crowns, noticing that they were some of the 3D shapes we learned in math.
