Dramatic Play Center

Many classrooms have Housekeeping or Home Living centers where children role-play cooking and keeping house. We recommend thinking of it as a Dramatic Play center. This way, you’re free to change the center whenever it’s useful. Changing themes and props allows the teacher to push-in a broader range of vocabulary and concepts.
