The focus of this class is the application of the Colorado State standards and skills, in developmentally appropriate ways.  One such activity, centered around the home, has students building furniture and designing dolls (to replicate themselves) for a dollhouse.  Students play with each other, in the dollhouse, learning vocabulary about items and activities occurring in the home.  The students are showing a lot of excitement and increasing language, with this activity!
