Pretend Play

Learning Goals: Social Play, Oral Language, Creativity, Abstract Thinking

    • Set up a dramatic centre within your classroom, providing materials for the children based on their interests.
    • Students can use available classroom materials to engage in pretend play by negotiating, choosing, and acting out roles and storylines.
    • This type of play is not limited to the dramatic play centre, instead it can occur anywhere inside or outside of the classroom.
