Animal Hospital and Zoo Dramatic Play [Winter Animals]




Are you planning an animal hospital or zoo dramatic play area? Have a theme of Winter? Need print and go prep posters, labels, or props? Then look no further!


Why Use Dramatic Play areas?


Dramatic play teaches self-regulation. This helps students to control their impulses, work with others and make plans. Dramatic play allows students to have an opportunity to work through emotions by exploring their feelings and thoughts. It encourages kids to work through conflict resolutions and disagreements. Dramatic play isn’t just for Prek! This set includes MANY literacy and math skills! Students will be writing receipts, counting money, telling time, and identifying numbers by waiting in line. In addition, students will be seeing functional print and this will increase their vocabulary.
