Using the phone book at the Dramatic Play Center...FREE download!

Each year, the Dramatic Play Centre is a class favourite!
Even though school just started, I can already see how much interest there is at this centre.
Students have been "cooking" food, setting the table, creating menus and using the telephone to call people and places.
 
 
My in-laws gave me this phone a few years back - if you have a real one that you no longer use, add it to your Dramatic Centre.  The students love pretending that it is real!
 
We listen to the children and plan for our program based on their interests and wonders.  Over the years, our Dramatic Centre has been a grocery store, bakery, doctor's office, ice cream parlor and so much more! 
Students can make an appointment by calling the doctor, order a cake by calling the bakery, etc.
You can add this to your Dramatic Play Centre and see all of the possibilities. 
 
Last week I noticed that one student spent much of her time reading the phone numbers in our phone book and identifying the numbers.  What a great way to practice number identification!
 
I decided to update this old phone book.

Click {here} for a download of a blank phone book for you to write in your own numbers.
 
Have fun!

  1. Thank you! I am looking forward to using more of your Dramatic Play packs this year - I bought the bundles. This is perfect, as I am set up as a house corner for now, just opening that centre tomorrow!
