Someone Call a Doctor!

From 3/4-Year-Olds Teacher, Mrs. Jones ~

“The 4-Day Class has been enjoying a doctor’s office dramatic play experience. Students have been exploring community helpers such as pharmacists, doctors, and x-ray technicians as they act out each profession. Dramatic play like this has so many benefits, such as oral language development, problem solving practice and nurturing the imagination. When children role play, they are given the opportunity to negotiate situations. As they become successful in cooperating with others, children develop self-esteem and a sense of accomplishment.”
