Three Things You Never Knew Drama Helped With 🎭
🎭 // THREE THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW DRAMA HELPED WITH // 🎭
📚 Literacy & Numeracy Skills 🧮
That's right! Drama gives children the opportunity to enhance vocabulary and develop linguistic skills. It can also build their capacity to discuss, debate, challenge and think outside the box. And because Drama helps with Critical Thinking, Innovation, and Confidence, the benefits of Drama can shine through in their Numeracy skills too, as they come out of their shells and have a stab at a tricky Maths question! How COOL is that?!
❤️ Empathy & Connection 👫
Understanding what someone else is going through or feeling can be tricky for children. After all, they haven't been around long enough to experience all of life's ups and downs, difficulties, and traumas, the whole plethora of emotions in life, like we adults! But drama is SUCH a powerful tool in helping children develop empathy. Through role-play and discussion of characters' situations, behaviours, feelings, and actions, we can help children to empathise with others in the real world too, thereby building stronger, deeper, and more meaningful connections.
😌 Acceptance & Problem Behaviour 😡
Regular involvement in the Arts can have a significant impact on how children show up in the world. Drama helps children make sense of the world around them while helping to improve self-regulation and promote prosocial behaviour. Through storytelling and improvisation, role-play and script work, we learn about other people - their feelings, their opinions, their backgrounds, religions and cultures. We learn to step into the shoes of another person and see things from their perspective, hereby adopting a more open-minded and accepting nature.
