My Students

Students come into our classrooms ready to learn. They are like little sponges and want to absorb all that is offered to them. So we need to provide them with the best materials we can offer them.

Students learn through play and using their imaginations.

We need a place to put our dramatic play clothes and accessories. We want them to also learn self care skills, also.

This project is very important to us in helping us cultivate these skills.

My Project

Ready, set, PLAY! Let's dress up and play a role of a doctor, teacher, policeman, fire fighter, chef, vet or parent. Let's help people, cook for people and take care of people or animals.

Dramatic play is important to children as it teaches self-regulation, conflict resolution, literacy and encourages their ideas.

It is empowering for child to be able to chose and accept a role in scenarios. It gives them a chance to get out of their comfort zones and let their imagination soar. They can play out and recognize the different roles people play in their lives and in their community.
