My Students

Our Pre-K and Kindergarten students embody what it means to take pride and ownership over their own learning! Their interests are supported through the curriculum and drive them to become critical thinkers and problem solvers.

Our students are joyous participants in their own learning experiences and are able to develop social-emotional and cognitive skills through play.

The students have expressed a desire to have more items in their dramatic play area. My students are so imaginative, and with the dress up clothes, their creative thinking and problem solving skills will increase. It will make a difference in how much farther they can engage in their play as well!

My Project

Children naturally have the desire to play. However, there are more benefits to play than just having fun. Child-directed play provides opportunities that allow children to use their imagination, interact with peers, and is a valuable asset to healthy brain development.

Through dramatic play, children are able to cultivate skills that are beneficial to their continuous learning by making authentic, real-world connections.

Research has shown that play helps young children with oral language development, motor development, social-emotional skills, literacy skills, mathematical skills, problem solving, and cognitive development as a whole.

These dramatic play clothing items will enhance play in three classrooms and will allow children to dig deeper into their interests from the real world.
