PLAY! An essential part of childhood in building skills necessary for academic success. Early childhood is the foundation of a child’s academic career. Critical thinking, self-regulation, problem solving, and working with others are developed through playing. In a play based classroom, the teacher makes decisions about the daily schedule, the environment, the materials, interactions and activities based upon the strengths, needs, interests and input of the students in the classroom. Whether you are thinking about adding more play to your daily routine or wanting to engage children in more purposeful play, this webinar is for you.
