Your little learners will love extending their vocabulary as they role-play in your Library Dramatic Play Center. As they play, they’ll be developing their oral language skills, their vocabulary and how to problem solve as they play with their peers.
They’ll develop fine motor skills as they fill in the various customer and librarian forms. Your preschoolers and kindergarten students will begin to recognise familiar words and extend their vocabulary as they engage with the signs and labels. The printables at the end of the pack are perfect for encouraging pre-writers and early writers to have a go!
There are so many opportunities for play-based learning with this pack of 45 pages of dramatic play fun ready to transform your Library Dramatic Play Center!
Inside the packet, you’ll find a list of suggested materials so all you need to do is print and go – the hard work has been done for you.
