How does the doctor help the… MONKEYS? As we move through the summer, the children continue to revisit a variety of dramatic play scenarios relating to doctor topics. We have recently been very connected to the finger play ‘5 little monkeys jumping on the bed’, especially the part where the doctor gets called! This has been a great opportunity to break down the story a little further and ask some questions about what happens with the monkeys at the doctor! We were gathered at the table one day, and the children began illustrating their thinking around this story, using a variety of design elements to demonstrate their ideas. “That’s my doctor. He’s fixing with tools” – LB, “Draw red monkey” – LC, “The monkey bumped his head” – SB.
