Language through the Seasons: Dramatic Play Activities for Early Childhood Learners.
This workbook brings together activities to aid in motivating children to concentrate, listen, respond, think, and learn. The activities rely upon play-like tasks involving drama, music, and other forms of creative expression. The activities are organized by the season in which they are appropriate and include songs, dramatic sequences, stories, and creative tasks such as drawing. Materials and procedures are listed for each activity. Through each experience, the child learns a concept, a word, or moral point of view. Also learned through many of the activities are the sequence abilities and narrative skills necessary for communicative competence and school success. Included is the sheet music for several of the songs, lists of other activities, and books that would be appropriate for the early childhood classroom. (SW)
