My students will benefit from dramatic play items such as a baby center, veterinary center, and play store by engaging in real life purposeful play. According to research, play is not a luxury. It is a necessity. Play and it's importance have been linked as a necessary part of a healthy happy life. Play shapes the brain and makes it more adaptable. Play is important to the positive emotional growth of children by teaching self-control, empathy and sharing. Play can lead to better behavior, improved social skills, and learning growth. Play is also fun and interesting and makes school a place where children look forward to going! While engaging in purposeful play, children “make discoveries, build knowledge, experiment with literacy and math, and learn to self-regulate and interact with others in socially appropriate ways,” writes Vicky Sideropoulos, a teacher at Berkshire Country Day School.“ "Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn." Fred Donaldson
