My goal for promoting social development is by role playing and giving the children the chance to be social. By role playing the children will gain the social skills needed as they grow and develop. In the classroom role playing sometimes happens without my promoting it. In the Dramatic play center I witnessed one student role playing to make the crying baby happy again. At first she sang a song and then she gave the baby a hug and said “the baby is happy now.” Before I step in to solve a conflict between children I observe the situation first to see what they do socially on their own. Often the students have learned the skills needed to resolve the conflict by socializing or role playing, if not I offer guidance by helping.
