Turn your housekeeping center into an ice cream shop! This kit includes directions to make pretend food, menus, order slips, shelf labels and more. Your students will be able to use their budding reading, writing and math skills while they play.
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 menus and order slips
*writing their ice cream orders
*writing restaurant reviews
*reading numbers (for prices)
The order slips and reviews include choices to match the reading/writing requirements to the current needs of your students. This kit also has role play name tags for the ice cream shop employees, store signs, and cover/pages for a class book.
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 ice cream shop materials.
Finally, the kit includes a math center where students match the numeral on the cone to various representations of that numeral on ice cream scoops. Everything in this kit will help your dramatic play ice cream shop run smoothly, while encouraging your students to extend the learning they are already doing in your classroom!
