When setting up learning centers in your classroom consider including a dollhouse. Providing a dollhouse center can help support oral language development in your students. A dollhouse is also very effective when used with second language learners.
By manipulating dolls and using different voices to represent various family members, students are imitating real world experiences and practicing oral language in fun and meaningful ways. My father made this doll house for us using a Lakeshore doll house as a model. The furniture was purchased from Lakeshore on clearance.
It is also important to have dolls in the dollhouse that reflect the ethnicities of your students.
