Unpacking Children’s Play Series
Ever wonder why children play the way they do? In children’s play they have opportunities to explore, engage and experiment with their ideas and beliefs of the world around them. Many of our programs have shifted to play based learning offerings to the children we work with to expand their learning. This series takes a closer look at the learning taking place in Block and Construction Play, Imaginative and Dramatic Play and Rough and Tumble Play. Each of the sessions in the series build upon each other through research and reflective practice and will offer ideas for you to explore within your centre.
Session 2 – Imaginative and Dramatic Play
Have you ever watched a child pick up an object and pretend it is a zooming car or put on a cape and become someone else? In imaginative and dramatic play children are using objects to represent something else while giving it an action or motion. The process of pretending builds many skills such as language, emotional intelligence, and thinking.
