Abstract


The aim of this study is to examine the impact of getting musical creative drama education on self-confidence of preschool children. The study was conducted in Tokat Private İlgim Schools, with 4, 5 and 6 year-old preschool children in the 2018-2019 academic year. The education was conducted with a total of 50 students, 29 being boys and 21 girls. The research data were collected through the Günalp self-confidence observation test that is applied to preschool children. At the end of the 10-week experimental period, the impact of creative drama education on self-confidence of preschool children was tested. SPSS program was used for data analysis. "ANOVA" was used in the comparison of the levels of self confidence by hometown, number of individuals living at the household, status of parents, number of siblings, child's birth order in the family, economic status of the family, age of starting school, caregivers before starting school, education level and occupation types. Results of the study showed that there was a significant difference in self-confidence development of preschool students as a result of creative drama studies. No statistically significant difference was found in the self-confidence development of students in terms of gender, hometown, number of individuals living at the household, status of parents, number of siblings, child's birth order in the family, economic status of the family, age of starting school, caregivers before starting school, education level and occupation types of parents. There was a significant difference between pre-school students' self-confidence in proportion to their ages. It was seen that musical creative drama activities make a positive impact on the self-confidence of preschool students.
