The power of ‘Play’

Parnts often ask us, ‘how can I enrich the experiences I have with my my child when I play with them at home?’ This picture is a great example of how it can be done. Whenever we place ourselves into a child’s play we ask ourselves three questions: Is there an opportunity here to make conversation?, is there an opportunity here to be mathematical and is there an opportunity here to mark-make (draw or write words, sentences and numbers) How would you apply these ideals to this situation? Post your ideas in the comments section. We’d love to hear your thoughts.
