Playing Restaurant....

This week many of the Wild Cats were busy putting up a restaurant. For this we had a lot of negotiation as to who would take on which role. We had chefs, waiters, cashiers, customers and 'money printers'! Everyone came together to have lots of fun. We came up with a name, Chilly's'! This play scenario gave us the opportunity to not only negotiate on a social front but also got us motivated to look deeper into money and number concepts. We practiced our writing as we made the menu and took orders. Authentic opportunities similar to this one are perfect for self motivated literacy and numerical engagement.
