This is the second week we are joining in the Just Playing? series. Last week we featured dress up play, and a few readers made great observation points. Be sure to check it out!
This week we played in the mud!
Now it is your turn to add your observations in comments!
We may be “just playing”, but….
What are the children doing here?
What do you see?
What learning is taking place?
What skills are being practiced/developed?
Thank you for remembering that young children do not “just play.” Young children play. They develop through play. They learn through play. They experiment through play. They grow through play. A child’s work is play. Play is important!
Please take a moment to reflect upon the photos and questions above. I would love for you to share your observations in a comment.
