Bookstore Dramatic Play: Signs, Labels, & MUCH MORE [Literacy Theme]



Are you planning for Read Across America? Need print and go prep posters, labels, or props to make a bookstore? 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.
