Turn your housekeeping center into a Farmer's Market - a perfect fall dramatic play center! This theme ties beautifully into the fall harvest! The materials in this kit include wall signs, produce posters, 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 the Farmer's Market. Student farmers can sell their produce to classmates, posing as local shoppers. Don't have lots of plastic fruits and vegetables? This set includes a wide variety of fruits and vegetables you can print on heavy paper and laminate. Then allow your students to write class books about their favorite fruits and vegetables. 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, and shopping lists
*writing shopping lists, reviews of the market, and recipes
*sorting and paying for produce items
This kit also has role play name tags for the market employees, market 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 Farmer's Market materials.
Everything in this kit will help your dramatic play farmer's market run smoothly, while encouraging your students to extend the learning they are already doing in your classroom!
