Set up pretend dental office and waiting room where children can pretend to visit the dentist.
Stuffed animals can be patients and children can be a dentist or dentists’ helpers.
The circle time lessons you have led give children a rich amount of background knowledge about what happens at the dentist’s office. Consider adding materials to your dramatic play center after each item and its use has been introduced at circle time.
Have children plan and make signs for the office.
Join the dramatic play area to support children in developing new language and more complex play schemes.
