Dramatic play enables children to dress, act out and be someone else other than themselves. It gives them an opportunity to role play different scenarios that they may be afraid of, have viewed in their every day lives or to help get an understanding of the situation. When children participate in dramatic play they begin to use words to enhance and describe their play thus extending on their language development. Dramatic play engaged children in learning and increases their understanding of the world they live in.
The Dramatic Play Template is for a child's portfolio and consists of a typical interest area that you may have set-up in your service setting. It enables you to add 3 images of the child playing in the specific area as well as a description to accommodate the photos. It also has the benefits the child gains through playing within the interest area as well as a tick box to Link to The Curriculum (Outcomes, Principles and Practices). The template also features a colour theme and clip art images for that particular interest area.
This template is great to add to a portfolio to help parents understand that dramatic play benefits a child.
