Time for Just Playing? Blog Hop! Hosted by Amy from Child Central Station and some more awesome kid bloggers! (You will find the list of all participating bloggers at the end of the post)
My daughter, 3 years and 8 months, loves playing school! It is not school as one would think a child would play, but I recognize some of the little “things” she does while playing as typical from her days at nursery school, because I taught at her school for a few years before having children,I know the routine.
But, enough said! Here are some pics, and then YOU tell me what you see…
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. I’d also like to invite you to “hop” on over to all of the other bloggers who are sharing photos of children learning through play this week:
