Playing to Get Smart
Jones, Elizabeth
Young Children, v58 n3 p32-36 May 2003
Through play children develop the basic skills needed to make choices in life and to tolerate ambiguity and the unexpected in a fast-changing world. To teach young children effective play skills, teachers must be skillful co-players and observers, not mere implementers of standardized curricula. Vignettes illustrate children's learning through play and teacher strategies to support play.
