We learn, we play and we act too!
Coz it’s our day and we are here at Zobbie doo!!
Dramatic play can be defined as a type of play where children accept and assign roles, and then act them out. It is a time when they break through the walls of reality, pretend to be someone or something different from themselves. Early learners are known for acting on impulse, so dramatic play is a great stepping stone for learning to self-regulate their emotions and actions. We have a bunch of kiddos who love dramatic play! We extended the socio dramatic play into our ELP by allowing the kids to explore and learn about the necessity to save the endangered species.
This year our SDP theme was “Save the endangered animals”. Our very own zoo at CPS Global, Thirumazhisai, named “Zoobie doo” was all set for the day. Students dutifully took the roles of cashier, zoo visitor, zoo keeper, and food server at the snack bar. Few of our kids dressed up as endangered animals too. The play kick started with the visitors entering the zoo after ‘buying’ their tickets from the counter. There was a stringent ticket inspector who ensured that all the visitors had their tickets in place before allowing entry. A colorful map at the entrance helped the visitors to navigate their way around the zoo. The visitors were taken on a tour by a well informed little guide whose narrations were brilliant. Two of our little ones dressed up as a mom and daughter duo and they were too adorable for words. The parents were brimming with pride to see their little ones perform their parts so efficiently. A stupendous waterfall, a cool lion and an adorable giraffe were the hot spots for photo shoot for the visitors. It was a great experience for our little learners with plenty of opportunities to explore their creativity, imagination, and oral language skills.
