What do you think of when you hear the word "play"? For some people, it is synonymous with a frivolous activity. But, when I think of PLAY, I know that it as the absolute best way for a young child to learn. As a former elementary school teacher, I know the qualities that make students successful. We teach these qualities in preschool through rich play experiences. Allow me to illustrate my point!
Do children really learn through play? That's the big question.
