My students need a new kitchen for their dramatic play center. They need a complete kitchen with a fridge, stove, tea set, microwave and kitchen accessories.
Cooking and talking go hand in hand. These little transitional kindergarten students need a place to build oral language and practice the new vocabulary they are learning daily. They need a little area in our classroom to feel free to express themselves while enjoying some time with their peers.
My students are part of a new transitional kindergarten program being piloted by the Los Angeles Unified School District in Southern CA.
We are at a primary center in a low social economic area. Our entire school is on free school lunch and is 100% title one. These transitional kindergarten students are the youngest of kindergarten students and are given the gift of time to help them build not only on there academic skills but more importantly, time to grow in their social and emotional skills.
During dramatic play students will be able to go to the kitchen area center and role play. They will have the opportunity to develop in their social skills as well as increasing their oral language. Students of this young age need many opportunities to express themselves and be involved in conversation. As we learn new vocabulary words they will be able to practice the new words as they actively participate in conversations with their peers. Students will also learn many social skills. Sharing and taking turns is a very crucial skill to have in order to become good citizens. By playing and interacting in the kitchen area they will have to learn to share and work together in order to "cook" and "eat" with one another. Transitional kindergarten students need as many opportunities to learn to be more confident in themselves and develop in their social and emotional skills. Having this kitchen will help the student work on this skills while actively playing.
The dramatic play area is a wonderful area for young transitional kindergarten students to build vocabulary and also social skills.
Students learn best when interacting with one another. The kitchen would grant them that opportunity. If students have an extensive vocabulary they are most likely to be successful in reading and writing. All the skills they acquire by interacting with one another will be a great part in helping them become successful students.
