Bilingual (French-English) Garden Centre/Flower Shop Dramatic Play Pack by Bilingual Mingle
There is nothing that cheers up a Kindergarten Classroom more than a Garden/Flower Shop Dramatic Play Centre! This product is ideal for your Pre-K/Kindergarten French or English classroom as part of your imaginative play.
This file is completely bilingual (French-English), and also has both colour and black and white copies of all pages (with the exception of the To/From tags, which I've left as black and white since they will likely be reproduced a number of times). If you would prefer to print in black and white to save on coloured ink (because that stuff is not cheap, am I right!), I'd recommend printing on brightly coloured paper to enhance the look of the product. Printing on card stock and then laminating is also a great way to have your product last for years to come!
The pack includes includes:
- Open/Closed Signs
- Large "Garden Centre" Banner
- Labels for 4 centre items: Gloves, Flower Pots, Seeds, Garden Tools (comes in two different sizes: either 2 or 4 labels per page)
- Labels for 6 types of flowers: Blue, Yellow, White, Pink, Purple, Orange (comes in two different sizes: either 2 or 4 labels per page)
- Blank To/From cards to print and add as a Writing element in your Dramatic Play Centre
This play pack addresses not only the social skills involved in dramatic play, but also has academic elements such as counting (when "ordering" a certain amount of flowers), coin recognition (if you choose to have a "cash" at the centre), printing (when filling out to/from cards), and much more!
To enhance this centre in my own classroom, I added things such as rubber boots, tissue paper (for students to "wrap" flowers), greenery (artificial tree), additional vocabulary labels on items within the centre ("blooming flowers"), as well as a separate "Garden" sensory bin to tie into the theme of Gardens/Flowers/Spring.
