Partners in Learning

Play based learning is the bulk of the preschool curriculum. During play, countless skills are developed. Today I looked around the room and noticed the social skills developing. There are four stages of play. The most advanced, as I enjoyed observing,  is cooperative play. 

During cooperative play, children harness their developing social skills for the sake of play. They communicate their ideas, share, listen, and act on a shared vision. 
Instead of seeking safety with one friend or two, the students are gaining confidence in trying different opportunities and working on different friendships.
