PLAYing is what we do best!


Children’s understanding of the world is reflected in their play. It is through play that they get to express their knowledge of concepts and explore new ideas. Children’s work is play.  Let’s see the children’s “work”:
 
 
BUILDing a tower

 

DRIVing the train
 
 
WASHing the fruits and vegetables
 
 
WAITing for the toast
 
 
KEEPing the food in the refrigerator
 
 
PAINTing the sliding door
 
GETting some ice cream
 
BUYing some groceries
 
 
 
Children love to use their imagination when playing.  They like to do a lot of pretend play.
As educators, we need to nurture that imagination by providing them with materials they could use and by engaging in conversations. It is through keeping that imagination alive that will let children be children.
Until next time,
Patricia
