The opportunities for using a classroom scenario are endless and Mattel has offered a number of education-themed playsets over the years. We have purchased various pieces from sets put out in the 90’s and we are able to create a lot of different classroom configurations. You can purchase a “I can be.. a Pre-school Teacher” sets in stores now.
When I want to practice a set of words I’m learning in Spanish, I take over the role of teacher Bavatarbie and make all the other players repeat what I am practicing.
We were lucky enough to get lots of school accessories and playset pieces off ebay so we have chalkboards and desks but it is possible to play this scenario without any props at all.
If your barbégé is highly interested in romantic relationships you can make it a college class or night school and then channel the play toward the ways college students might both flirt AND learn 🙂
Michaels/Hobby Lobby type stores sell small (5 x 7 inch) chalkboards in wooden frames that you could use as a chalkboard if you don’t have a set Mattel accessories.
Leah is currently in pre-K and I am surprised that when we do play preschool her favorite thing to do is to have the adults arrive to pick up their kids. Of course. I love this! I like to think it means that seeing me arrive in the afternoons is her favorite part of the day!
