Changing up your dramatic play area

In my classroom, we have a little pretend kitchen area.  I like to change it up so that the children build other kids of vocabulary.  I make it into a restaurant by adding menus from different places where I can get to go menus.

I also add in a notebook with pencils and a large calculator for a cash register.  It is even better if you have a pretend cash register.  They love writing down orders and adding up what you owe.

You also can tell that the children love to write on the notebook.  This really builds up their vocabulary  I like changing the dramatic area as restaurants, doctor's office, dentist office,  airports or anything that we are using as a theme.  It really works.
