Help me give my students dramatic play dress up clothes, puppets and a puppet theater so they can express their imagination.
Barack Obama said "Our most important task as a nation is to make sure all our young people can achieve their dreams". My desire as a teacher is to help my students figure out what their dreams are in this moment. Being a preschool teacher can be a challenge as the students are figuring out the rules and where their place is in the world.
My students are filled with wonder of the world around them and come up with new ways to describe what they see.
I want to create an atmosphere where the children are free to dream and free to be themselves. I want to be able to give them new experiences in and out of the classroom. Teaching them not only right from wrong but how to love one another as well.
They love to build, play pretend, draw and play with dolls. We are working on understanding emotions and how our actions can affect the people around us. New toys that expand their creativity, problem solving and imagination would make a difference in their lives.
My students are full of imagination. What they are missing with material items, they make up in their minds. The dress up clothes will help my students recognize a character or occupation and act out what they know from experience while creating their own.
The dramatic play center is more than just playing dress up, it is a chance for students to enhance their socialization skills with one another.
We will be able to help my students enhance their social emotional skills with one another by playing make believe with the puppets. They will then be able to make up their own puppet shows for their peers.
