The children in our care LOVE to play with the parachute!
Welcome to the weekly “Just Playing?” Blog Hop hosted here at Child Central Station. This is our second week hopping and discussing our observations of the learning happening when children are at play. For more information about this hop and how to join, visit the “Just Playing” landing page.
Last week, I shared some photos of the children building a train out of chairs. I have updated the post to include some additional insights into the play- you can read that updated post here.
Now- on to this week……
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:
