    Learning Goals: Literacy, Reading, Mutually-Directed Play, Addition, Subtraction

      • Together, the educator and students decided to create a classroom grocery store.
      • The educator helped the children to brainstorm the required materials by prompting students with guiding questions.
      • The educator provided students with classroom resources and found materials to help them create props for their grocery store.
      • The students worked together to create shopping baskets, signs and price tags.
      • Students took on various roles as customers/cashiers to collect and purchase groceries, create receipts, and pay for their food.

    We are the Play Learning Lab, run by Dr. Angela Pyle at the Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education/University of Toronto.
