Lisa Murphy on Play: The Foundation of Children's Learning, Second Edition
Murphy, Lisa
Redleaf Press
Discover why school readiness IS children's play. This updated guide includes timely research and new stories that highlight how play is vital to the social, physical, cognitive, and spiritual development of children. Learn the seven things we must do with children every day and why they are so important. Use your daily observations to incorporate these seven things in an authentic and engaging way: (1) Explore the how and why of the seven things we should do everyday: create, move, sing, discuss, observe, read, and play; (2) Understand how to link concepts to the experiences children have; (3) Focus on what each child is doing, not what they are not doing; and (4) Become aware of challenges you might face and how to work through them. Play builds the foundation that later learning will be built on. So let's make it a strong one.
