|dc.description.abstract||The purpose of this Master’s Thesis Project was to identify the relationship between active play and oral language development and create the Professional Development Project: ENRICHING STUDENTS' ORAL LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT THROUGH ACTIVE PLAY. The Professional Development Workshop provided teachers with the tools to implement a play-based curriculum and with activities to use in their classroom. A literature review was conducted and the aspects that were explored included the relationship between play and oral language development, what a play-rich environment includes and how it can be implemented into the school curriculum to promote language development. The findings indicated that play and language and cognitive development are intimately linked.||en_US|
