Dramatic Play is powerful. Play provides children the opportunity to use their imagination, learn cooperation, learn about cause and effect, and practice how things work in the real world.
I have put together a suggested props list and a set of materials that are great for a dramatic play center and I would like to suggest that you use these paper props that I have put together at a writing center and encourage students to use the vocabulary cards and signs as a springboard for writing.. Children love to play make-believe and also love to "bake." This set of materials will assist you as you get your centers set up.
This set includes:
**Small Open / Closed Signs
**Large Open / Closed Signs
**Bakery Hour Signs
**Bakery Bunting Banners –color
**Hand Washing Sign --color
**50 Cent Menu –color
**$1.00 Menu –color
**$5.00 Menu –color
**$20.00 Menu –color
**Customer Order Form –color
**Special Order Birthday Cake Form --color
**Credit Cards / ATM Cards –color
**Play Money Dollar Bill Templates –color and b/w
**Play Money Coin Templates –color and b/w
**Vocabulary / Pocket Chart Cards –color
**Cooking Supply Labels --color
I have an excellent sight word emergent reader and teacher lap book that would go very well with this set...........check it out! It is called, "Going to the Bakery."
