A dramatic play Grocery Store is perfect for your housekeeping center! Use your own pretend food, plus empty boxes and cans collected by parents, to stock the shelves of your store. The materials in this kit will provide authentic reading and writing activities for the dramatic play center. The kit includes 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 a food store. Student workers can stock shelves, bag food, and serve as cashiers. 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 store and recipes
*sorting and paying for food
This kit includes:
• role play cards
• store banner
• wall signs
• shopping lists
• work schedules
• signs/labels for products
• class books
• lists of related books
• and so much more!
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 Grocery Store materials.
Everything in this kit will help your dramatic play grocery store run smoothly, while encouraging your students to extend the learning they are already doing in your classroom!
