SHARE, CARE, AND PLAY FAIR:

Using Drama to Enhance Children’s Social-Emotional Development

In SHARE, CARE, AND PLAY FAIR, explore children’s literature to find the messages so important to a child’s social and emotional growth. In this interactive workshop, learn drama strategies that promote the social-emotional skills of empathy, respect, self-control, kindness, cooperation, problem-solving, and self-confidence in our youngest learners. By examining literature through a new lens, SHARE, CARE, AND PLAY FAIR will build the foundation for shaping children’s hearts and minds through the arts. Includes handout.

Goal: To examine literature and drama strategies that promote children’s social-emotional development, with an emphasis on kindness, empathy, and respect for self and others.

*All workshops longer than 90 minutes include an on-site orientation meeting.
