We love shopping at Monteagle Nursery. The children have enjoyed the outdoor ‘shop’ role play area this week. The children have taken turns to be the shop keepers and customers. We have learnt about the price of items and how many coins you need to count out to pay for items. We talked about and demonstrated how to scan the bar code on packages and how to pack your shopping into bags. We discussed the different types of shops you can go to and wrote shopping lists so we knew what we needed to buy. The children practised turn taking and sharing resources and we also reinforced the polite language to use while working in this area e.g. can I please have …. and thank you for shopping at …… good morning or good afternoon.
