Use this kit to turn your housekeeping or dramatic play center into a hospital or clinic! The materials in this kit include wall signs, patient charts, shelf labels and so much more! (Check out the preview for a full list of things that are included.)
Allow your students to use their imaginations as you transform your dramatic play area into a hospital or doctor's office. Student doctors and nurses can examine their classmates as patients. For another option, you can use stuffed animals as patients. Students can also write get well notes to sick classmates.
To stock your hospital or clinic consider asking parents for basic supplies like band-aids, using the parent letters that are part of the set. Enhance your dramatic play center with related books from the book list.
Not only will your students practice their social skills and organizational skills, they will also have the opportunity to apply academics as they play:
*reading the signs, rules, cards, and notes from friends
*writing on patient charts and get well cards
*measuring and weighing patients
This kit also has role play name tags for the medical employees, hospital/clinic signs and cover/pages for two class books.
I have also added suggestions for creating and organizing your dramatic play area in ways that will help students to be independent while using it and during clean-up! A key part of this organization is shelf labels with words and pictures - indicating where to place the doctor office/hospital materials.
Everything in this kit will help your dramatic play hospital or clinic run smoothly, while encouraging your students to extend the learning they are already doing in your classroom!
