My students need new dolls and play food for our dramatic play center. When children play house, they learn to kindly communicate and cooperate with one another.
My philosophy on teaching is that if kids can’t learn the way we teach, we must teach them the way they learn. That means my classroom is typically a fun, active and challenging setting. My students come from a neighborhood that has a high crime and poverty rate. However, this does not mean that they should be treated as less than any other student in our state. I enjoy learning and teaching through games, small group instruction, physical movement, individualized learning goals, and a positive work environment.
Dramatic play, the kind of play that happens when children play with dolls, helps develop a child’s imagination as they encounter creative, imagined scenarios with their dolls and other children.
Playing with dolls as well as their friends, children run into new and unique situations for their games.
Communicating with one another can strengthen their vocabulary by filling it with practical language. By communicating in this way with their friends, children gain insight into home routines that may be different from their own. In this way, they discover the world around them. Another important social skill that children learn when playing with dolls is how to process emotions such as empathy and compassion. Just like caring for their doll teaches responsibility, it teaches them to empathize with those around them and allows them to grow up into caring people.
