Dramatic Play is a great way to develop oral language skills, cooperation, content vocabulary and social skills in your early childhood classroom!
Use this packet to set up a Post Office dramatic play area in your learning space. It doesn’t need to cost a lot of money, in fact you probably have a lot of resources already around the classroom or home that you can use! You might even like to ask your students to help collect objects they can use!
In order to save you some time preparing signs, labels and printables for your imaginative play, I’ve created a bunch of wonderful printables ready to use in your Post Office role-play area!
Included in this packet:
x ‘Welcome to the Post Office’ sign
x Open and closed signs
x Opening Hours sign
x ‘Worker of the Week’ and ‘Meet your Staff’ signs
x ‘Please wait here to be served’ sign
x ‘Weigh your parcel here’ sign
x Price List signs (versions for whole dollars and dollars and cents)
x ‘Parcels’ and ‘Letters’ labels
x ‘How to post a letter’ poster
x Small labels for various post office items (such as scales, envelopes, stamps, uniforms etc)

As you can see, there is a lot included!! You may choose to use all of the printables or you may select just a few. You might even like to encourage your Little Learners to help create additional items for your Post Office depending on their age!
As your students play and imagine, they will be building fantastic content-specific vocabulary!
Please be sure to check out the preview images to see exactly what’s included.
Happy playful learning!

I absolutely love these sets – so easy to prepare, and I really like that there are different options for names of some of the items. The list of things to collect to set up the play set is also helpful.
