Kitchen dramatic play centers are fun for students, but also great places to learn! This set includes everything you need for an inviting home living or housekeeping center. The pages in this set allow your students to use reading, writing, and math skills as they play.
Not sure if this is the set for your class? Check out the small Housekeeping Dramatic Play Sample Pack!
The set includes
• welcome signs
• role play name tags
• shelf labels
• family "wall hangings"
• a cookbook
• recipe cards
• a phone book
• phone messages
• shopping lists
• a class book
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 and wall hangings (welcome, mom/dad/grandpa, etc.)
-using the words on the shelf labels during clean-up
-reading the cookbook to prepare meals
-writing recipes, phone messages and shopping lists
I have also added suggestions for 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 kitchen and household items.
Finally, the kit includes pattern cards (ABAB and ABCABC) and number sequencing cards, as well as related practice pages. Everything in this kit will help your housekeeping center run smoothly, while encouraging your students to extend the learning they are already doing in your classroom!
