After learning about how to keep healthy with bathroom dramatic play we are exploring doctor dramatic play. We are learning so much vocabulary- body parts, inside the body and doctors tools. Bring able to play with our doctors kits (one being a generous donation from Cathering Flavin- Thank you so much!) has allowed our class to work through anxieties and answer questions about visits to the doctor and getting sick. We have enjoyed reading and singing related stories and songs such as "How do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon?" and "Miss. Molly." Here are some pictures from the past few weeks.

Practicing sounding out words with doctor vocabulary
After working in our doctor's office for two weeks we decided to carry on using the same materials but incorporating animals and opening our vet's office. Now for vocabulary we are learning names of animals and for science, about animals needs and life cycles, so this is a perfect way to incorporate play into what we are learning.
