Title: Dramatic Play: More than Babies and Dishes
Date: 07/21/2015 Time: 06:30 PM-08:30 PM
Description: In many classrooms the dramatic play area has traditionally been centered in “housekeeping”. However, when we actually watch children play, we see them reinventing scenes that might take place in other areas of life such as gas stations, building sites, or grocery stores. This should tell us, that in order to derive the full benefit from dramatic play as it relates to learning, early educators should “set the stage” throughout the classroom. This workshop will supply ideas for prop boxes in addition to creating a more gender-friendly dramatic play area in your classroom.
