"La Pizzeria"

Last Thursday, I overheard a few students in my class discussing restaurants...one of my favourite things to talk about!
So naturally I jumped in on the conversation.
One of my students ordered pizza for dinner the night before and was telling her friends the toppings that she liked on her pizza.
This lead us to think about changing our Dramatic Centre into a "Pizzeria".
And so we began to think about what a pizzeria might look like and what kinds of food it would serve.

This is the area for the pizza toppings...these are all made from felt!
The tongs are for the Pizza Maker to use...and it's also a great way to work on our fine motor skills!

The "pizza makers" were responsible for making each pizza, made to order!

The "server" seated the customers and brought them a menu to look through.

Then the pizza orders were taken using this form.

We have "tables" everywhere in the class because this centre is so popular!

We posted a list of toppings.  I love how the children also referred to this list when writing daily in our room.
