Imagination Station- Grocery Store

The afternoon in kindergarten is full of opportunities for the kids to learn and play. Learning and playing are nearly inseparable when you are 5 years old.

Our playroom activities include a puppet storytelling center, ABC center, art center, building center, and the imagination center. The imagination center has been a place to play house so far this year. The kids love playing with the little plastic plates and baby dolls, but today we put all of that away to turn the imagination center into a grocery store. 

This was all set up by my WONDERFUL teaching partner.
Families helped by sending in empty boxes to stock the shelves.

Students had a great time filling up their carts and taking their purchases to the cash register.

 Pretend grocery shopping is expensive, too!!!
$11,401,077? Whoa! Is the federal government buying this stuff?

The kids cart their purchase back to restock the shelves and start all over again. 

I have to say that this is a lot more fun than REAL grocery shopping, which I had to do on the way home from school today. I'd much rather shop in the playroom!
