  • My Class Needs social-play materials to enhance language and social development

    My Students

    I have a class of 22 4-5 year old children at Sunshine Hills. My current class is very social and loving and they love to play dramatic play at the play centre. At home they do not have the opportunity to live social lives as their schedules are too busy and they do not get a chance to play. Dramatic play is well loved because the children dress up and play together so nicely. While playing they set aside their differences and morph into the characters they want to be!

    How will this project impact them?

    Unfortunately our play centre is in really rough shape with breaking doors, and clothes that are way too big and unattainable through the broken cabinet in which the clothes are stored. We have a cash register but no money to put inside it. Goals and benefits: The money will help the math unit on money, and with new dramatic play materials the children can safely play without getting hurt and can move around more safely in getting things. They can also engage in more dramatic play together and they would be engaged in social-interactive play which is so important in French and in Kindergarten. I would love to label items clearly in French that they use. Also if the children had a dollhouse they could do social play there as well, and do the same sort of imaginative social play!
