Dramatic Play: Role Playing for Academic and Social Success!

Help me give my students dramatic play materials to help them gain experiences and learn empathy, self-control, and problem solving skills.

My Students

My students are curious, creative, and caring learners! Our school is located in a community that is in need of high quality classroom materials. Our school is a public, low-income/high-poverty, Title I school with a diverse population of students. These demographics are reflected in my classroom. I am seeking to meet the needs of each and every student in my classroom. In my classroom, it is essential we work together to create a safe, caring, and cooperative learning environment to help each student succeed.

My Project

The Washable Baby Dolls, Doll Crib and doll bedding, Mailbox, and Kid Costumes, will give my students access to new experiences and give them the opportunity to learn important and crucial skills for learning readiness in the classroom. Many of my students are school dependent; they rely on my classroom for all their academic and social experiences. These materials will help my students learn empathy, turn-taking, sharing, negotiation and problem solving skills, self-control, and expressing emotions through role-playing with peers in a structured environment. Tools for pretend play (baby dolls and their accessories, costumes that look like people they see in real life, etc) help students build these skills. These skills are crucial for students to be successful in a classroom while collaborating with others, self-regulate, and manage their emotions is necessary to their academic success. Dramatic play also gives students opportunities for learning and practicing language skills through communicating with their peers, and reading, writing, and mathematics skill-building through pretend play. The baby dolls, crib, mail carrier, and chef costume materials will provide my students with a variety of learning opportunities.
