Playing For Learning
COK: 1.5 hours of Professionalism and 1.5 hours of Curriculum
Effective play does not just happen! The play space must be thoughtfully prepared with each specific child in mind. Each child is unique and so is his play progression. These skills will help to attract children to productive play.
During this workshop participants will:
- Apply the principles that lead to productive play based on children’s predictable play behaviors to set a play environment.
- Explore the three necessities of productive play; time, space and materials.
- Understand a strategy for the effective use of loose parts; storage, classification and rotation.
- Create a useful play facilitation plan.
Some of these workshops may be available in shorter formats.
