My Play Doctor Checklist is a great way for your student or child to learn how to interact with other children and play pretend doctor. Imaginary play is an essential part of a child's development.
This form includes a spot for the patient's name, their weight and height, an area to circle where the problem is and the pretend doctor's name and date. It also has a checklist with colorful graphics which includes whether the patient is well or sick and areas on the body to be checked/examined or things to be done. The items listed on the checklist are the heart, lungs (breathing), ears, nose, throat, eyes, temperature, blood pressure, shot (needle), bandage and medicine. There is also a special instructions area where they can instruct their pretend patient to get extra rest and drink more water and juice. (There are 2 of the same exact checklists on 1 sheet so that it can either be cut in half or folded. The 1/2 sheet can easily be clipped to a smaller clipboard, perfect for small hands.) This is specifically designed for play/pretend use only, please keep your child/student under strict supervision while they are using this checklist especially if they are using on another individual. This form was created FOR DRAMATIC PLAY ONLY and is to be used with a toy doctor kit only (bought or home-made)!!! Can also be used to do a check-up on any willing stuffed animal or doll. (an animal version for the young "veterinarian" is also available!) ***RECENTLY ADDED*** Play Doctor Appointment Cards!!! 6 on 1 sheet! After your young doctor has seen their patient they can make their next appointment using these cards. Has a place for the patients' name, an area for them to check the day, a blank for the date & time and a special reminder at the bottom! Those special reminders are to remember to take your vitamins, brush your teeth, wash your hands often, don't forget to eat your vegetables, make sure to exercise and get plenty of rest!
This would be a great resource to use along with a lesson or unit plan on community helpers (learning the importance of a doctor's role), while studying or learning about the human body or just for fun! This could also be a great way to help familiarize your child with what a doctor does and help them overcome a fear of going to doctor's office.
I hope your little ones enjoy this checklist as much as mine do!
