1. Assemble the supermarket materials in one location in the room.
2. During circle time, explain to the whole group that everyone will work
together to set up a supermarket. There will be four to five aisles. Explain that
similar items should go in appropriate aisles. Aisle setups might be:
* fruits and vegetables
* meats
* drinks
* desserts
* soaps and cleaning products
3. Place pictures representing the materials for the aisles in the room or area so
children can match the items to the pictures.
4. Depending on the dynamics of the group, either send one person at a time
to choose an item and place it in the appropriate aisle or ask that the whole
group work together.
5. Provide guidance as needed to children who need help finding objects that
match the pictures.
6. When children seem to understand the concept, encourage them to explore
and play independently in the supermarket learning center.
