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. 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
**Ice Cream Shop Hour Signs
**The Ice Cream Shop Bunting Banners
**Hand Washing Sign
**The Ice Cream Shop Menu with pictures
**The Ice Cream Shop Menu with prices
**Ice Cream Flavors Sign
**Frosty Flavors Sign
**Popsicle Flavors Sign
**How to Make a Sundae Sign
**Sundae Toppings Sign
**Take Home Cartons Sign
**Credit Cards / ATM Cards
**Play Money Dollar Bill Templates
**Play Money Coin Templates –color and b/w
**Vocabulary / Pocket Chart Cards –color
