4&5 Year Old Creative Dramatics
April 11, 2015
For the past 5 years I have created and facilitated creative dramatics classes for 4 & 5 year olds based on the books of Eric Carle, Karma Wilson, Jan Yolen, Eric Litwin, and Anna Dewdney. These classes are created to stimulate the imagination and explore. Connections are explored through dramatic play, music, movement, and puppetry. The focus is on creative expression and promoting social skills such as active listening and sharing.
