You are a kindergarten teacher who has developed a large sociodramatic center in your classroom. As the new school year begins, a number of parents have raised questions about whether such play is appropriate in kindergarten. Several ask about the academic benefit for children. Write a letter to parents in which you explain the developmental value of play and justify its inclusion in kindergarten. In your letter, refer to research on the developmental significance of this activity.

Suggested Responses: Students should write a persuasive letter which extols the benefits of play. Included in the letter should be discussions about: symbolic thought (and related abilities such as reading or language), general intelligence, I.Q., problem solving, and creativity. Students may also wish to comment on social and motor benefits which are addressed in other chapters.
