Some kids get so into the pretend in drama that they need a very clear transition back into their “real” selves. I like to give their “character selves” a chance to recap what they did in the drama, and then we usually go to sleep and then shake off our “character selves.” Some kids even need more than that, and we will take time pretending like we are taking off the character piece by piece. Here is a recent clip of drama closing from the end of Where the Wild Things Are. This is a very short one since we were running a bit late.
