Pretend Play Tools for Oral Language Growth in the Preschool.
Yawkey, Thomas D.; Hrncir, Elizabeth J.
Journal of Creative Behavior, v16 n4 p265-71 1982
Imaginative play can enhance preschoolers' oral language when the child's internal control is strenghtened, external reality is suspended, and motivation exists to become involved. The caregiver provides cues in the arrangement of the environment and selection of materials. Cues can encourage dramatic as well as sociodramatic play. (CL)
