Dramatization plays a major role in children’s education system. It improves vocabulary in language skills and cognitive approach in students. Taking part in it creates an opportunity for the students to learn communication and enhance their creativity. Role play/dramatization increases children’s imagination level, clear pronunciation, and fluency in speaking. Children love fun and new techniques in learning new topics i.e. story, rhyme, science, etc. So drama/role play makes the topic more interesting and it also helps the children to learn rapidly in school.

Encouraging children to involve in dramatization boosts their confidence level. It also develops students’ social, emotional, and cultural skills. Many educational systems upgrade themselves in dramatization for better output in learning content. Students also understand emotions, body language, meaning, vocabulary, and morals through dramatization which has been conducted by the education system. Role play is not only a play of a particular subject but it is also effective use of puppets, boards, flannel boards, charts, masks, costumes, and also some materials which implement for constructive learning.

Schools should also come up with the idea of a “drama club” where each student must participate in every role play and build a positive attitude and self-assurance. Teaching is not only sitting in the four walls of the classroom but teachers can also arrange a set of drama areas where every student will see new visions and imaginary world of their own. It refines thinking capacity and they gain more interest in the subject and topic. 

Dramatization is not just a puppet show or a simple play of the particular content; it includes some appealing activities, questions, and narration to grow students’ self-esteem. It also upgrades students’ character, morality ethics, curiosity, and gestures.
