Do you use a home center in your classroom or homeschool? Creating a space for learners to mimic cooking and other household chores has so many benefits from preschool to first grade (yes – still in first grade).
Providing your little learners with home center activities that promote social, cognitive, language and physical development is essential to see the full benefits dramatic play can have.
With pumpkin season in full swing I provided a recipe for my little ones to use during their play. Our kitchen had all of the ingredients (in pretend form, of course) that they were able to use and I posted the recipe and ingredients list on the wall.
You can grab this resource to add to your home center for your little learners. Just click the download button at the bottom of this post! Simply print, grab some “ingredients” for pretend play and let your learners follow the recipe for a yummy pumpkin pie.
