With all of the gardens beginning to grow now that nice weather has finally arrived, the students in our Full Day Kindergarten class are excited about plants, both flowers and food.  One of the children brought in pictures of her family’s food garden and showed it around the classroom. My teaching partner and I decided to change our dramatic play centre to a grocery store to capitalize on the students interest in the picture and how food grows.

We gathered all of the plastic food, made store signs, printed labels for shelving and went to the library to find books on the food groups.  We also made up sheets for the students to print, or draw, their own grocery lists, as well as their own receipts.  We set up after school, and today, we made a big “production” of opening our store.  The children loved it!
