Supporting Children’s Play April 18, 2022
Through understanding the function of play, adults can define their role in children's most natural learning style. By asking ourselves difficult questions, we can start to comprehend how our involvement helps or hinders children's discovery of their world. During close, informed, and continuing observations of spontaneous play, adults can learn about each child's personality, learning style, and preferred mode of learning. This is the groundwork for developing powerful curriculum. Grasping the importance of play sets the wheels in motion for adults to become planners, assessors, communicators, scribes, players, mediators, and stage managers. Filled with stories, this workshop helps all adults understand the significance of their role while children are engaged in the multifaceted exercise we call "play."
