AbstractThe current research aims at investigating the effect of using puppets theatre in the social growth and the verbal vocabulary for kindergartens children. In order to achieve these aims, the two researchers have put the following four hypotheses:-
The researcher has used the experimental design with the pre and post test with a control group The first experimental group has been taught according to the puppets theatre style, while the control group has been taught according to the normal method. The sample of the research consisted of (50) male and female children distributed as (25) male and female children in the control group and( 25) children in the control group , The two researchers have prepared the necessary educational plans for both groups (10) plans of each group, they were presented to a committee of specialized experts to make sure of their validity.
Also the two researchers have prepared two tools:-
First:- To measure the social growth consisted of (42) items.
Second:- To measure the verbal vocabulary consisted of (16) images and (60) questions distributed on eight levels.
After achieving the validity of the tools they were applied to the two research groups before starting and ending the experiment so as to investigate the puppets theatre effect on the social growth and verbal vocabulary for sample's individuals.
After treating the data statistically , the results were as follows:-
1. There is a statistical significant difference sign at a level of (0,05) between the means of the experimental group in the pre and post test on the social growth scale and infavor of the post test.
2. There is a statistical significant difference at a level of (0,05) between the means of the experimental group and the control group on the social growth scale in the post test infavor of the experimental group.
3. There is a statistical significant difference at a level of (0,05) between the means of the experimental group in the verbal vocabulary between the pre and post test infavor of the post test .
4. There is not statistical significant l difference sign at a level of (0,05) between the means of the experimental group degrees average and the control group degrees average on the verbal vocabulary in the post test.
In the light of these results, the researcher has submitted a number of recommendations and suggestions the most important ones are opening courses in collaboration with Education Directorate and University of Mosul to train teachers how to use puppets in teaching kids. The researcher has suggested to make a comparative study between puppets and roal–play wayin the social and linguistic growth for kindergartens kids.
