Abstract

Bio-psycho-social capacities of pre-school children and younger age pupils are encouraged through programmed activities based on: movement, music and speech. Additional drama activities should be modernized by focusing not only on children's lines. With the appropriate repertoire, the whole drama activity will be accompanied by music that has relaxing and stimulating effect on children (participants and viewers). All children can participate in these activities, regardless of whether they have talent for acting, vocal interpretation and rhythm. The goal of additional drama activities is to encourage as many children as possible to participate in these activities, as they contribute to the development of speech, hearing and rhythm. Children strengthen self-confidence and gain experience related to public performance, which will help them to be more successful in handling everyday life situations. In these contemporary conceptual drama activities there is a possibility of improvisation by children, with the aim of developing divergent thinking. In addition to educators and teachers, drama activities are also organized by a music teacher, Serbian language teacher and physical education teacher. The work is team-based and interdisciplinary. The programming of these activities also strengthens the socio-emotional competences of children.
