Original Plays by Kindergarten

Thursday, March 2, 2017

In kindergarten this week, children created and acted out original plays that they adapted from fairytales.

"'Pretend' often confuses the adult, but it is the child's real and serious world, the stage upon which any identity is possible and secret thoughts can be safely revealed."
-Vivian Gussin Paley 

During their study of fairytales, they discussed plot design, character development, and setting, and they asked such questions as: What makes a fairytale a fairytale? Do they live happily ever after?
