This phone is one of my absolute “must-haves” for my dramatic play center.
You can easily add oral language and math to your dramatic play center in preschool or kindergarten with the Phone Smart Teaching Telephone by Learning Resources.

Dramatic Play Telephone
No matter what theme you have in your dramatic play center you can easily incorporate the teaching telephone to support oral language development, number identification skills and more. I have used this phone in my classroom for many years and it is a favorite with every class.
Free Printable Teaching Telephone Cards
I made these free phone number cards for you to use in your dramatic play center, your kids can refer to the chart when making phone calls.
Just print on cardstock, write in the phone numbers, and place in a pocket chart in your dramatic play center.
I intentionally left the phone number space blank so you can use the area code and prefixes for your location, which will be more meaningful for your students also help them learn their own phone numbers. I have also included one blank card for you to customize.
