This pack makes it easy to set up a grocery store, simply print and laminate (for durability) and add your own props.
You can choose to keep it simple by adding a few food items to your Dramatic Play Stand or add more stands on the side to accommodate more grocery merchandise.
Add some grab and go items at the checkout with the Grab and Go Favorites from Melissa and Doug, shown on the right.
Department signs and item labels help keep the grocery store organized and support literacy development.
Use a combination of recyclables, play food, and grocery sets to complete your store.
Reading a grocery ad and checking off the grocery list are great early literacy skills!
**Teacher Tip: Follow-up this activity by putting real grocery ads in the learning environment. Children can cut them out to make a collage, circle items they are interested in, or take them to the grocery store to see if they can find the items.
Preschoolers are beginning to recognize numerals and have an interest in money.
They will love learning to read the price labels and ring up items on the cash register.
Preschoolers will enjoy taking turns at all the different roles!
Whether they are the customer loading up their cart with goodies, playing cashier ringing up items, bagging groceries, or stocking shelves, they are sure to have lots of learning fun.
