As we enter into a new semester we begin to think about new ideas and concepts to explore with the children. We have noticed they really enjoy many aspects of dramatic play: dancing, taking care of babies, building roads, playing restaurant, etc. We are beginning to explore these ideas more deeply with the children...particularly the "roles" we act out when playing these types of activities. What do waiters do? What are policeman jobs? What do mommies and daddies do for their babies? How do artists create art? If we are performing, who is going to be the audience? Our big question we are beginning to explore is: What do these people do? What are their roles?
