Restaurant Day

After talking about our restaurant and planning for over a week, the Kindergarteners were eager to welcome the First and Second Graders to our restaurant.
All set up and ready to go!
We spent the previous weeks in activity time and restaurant dramatic play discussing and learning about: different types of food, menus, the layout of a restaurant, customer and waiter dialogue, cooking and recipes, pricing foods and addition and subtraction with money and the cash register. The subject matter was rich with material for academics in all areas including vocabulary, literacy and math. In preparation for Friday we had made our own menus, priced our items and sent an invitation to the First and Second Grade who arrived Friday afternoon right on time.
Working on our own menus with menus from local restaurants and food vocabulary cards.

Getting ready. So much vocabulary- plates, cups, forks, knives, spoons!

Artful table settings.

The day was a success, exciting and stimulating for all ages of children! We love it when we can collaborate with the other classes and make learning relevant and fun.
