Role-play, a playful activity is pure fun and so very vital to a child’s learning. Sparking and enhancing creativity and imagination in children, helps in developing speaking and listening skills in children besides giving them the opportunity to reflect on their knowledge and develop it further. Assuming the role of a character in a story helps the children take their understanding beyond the text as they make connections with the story, the characters and their motivations.The students of Kindergarten combined literacy with the expedition ‘The Food We Eat’as they read the story ‘The Little Red Hen’ and engaged in a role-play activity where they assumed the role of one of the characters and explained the story from the character’s point of view. Children’s creativity and their acting chops were at full display as they expressed themselves and elucidated on why they chose to act as the character did in the story. This activity helped the children to critically examine and understand the story from various perspectives, augmenting their literacy skills.
