This month is community helper month. We are learning about all of the different jobs that people do in our community to help us live and learn.
The classroom has been transformed into a store and post office. Today we added a veterinarian to our purposeful play.
The play is very important in the preschool classroom. Children learn through play exploring new environments and practicing new skills through play. Today, through play in the classroom they have created and explored what would happen in an Animal Hosptial. They each took part in creating the scenarios with various outcomes that they created. Listening to their conversation as they take care of the needs of the animals in the classroom. They are “giving each animal a check up” They are communicating with each other as they play reaching the level of cooperative play.
