Play Schemas: Part 1
Newsletter 2 of the Play Schemas Mini Series
Welcome to the second newsletter in this mini course about play schemas. This week, we are taking a deeper delve into 3 play schemas: trajectory, connecting and transporting.
Understanding Play Schemas is important for parents and educators in two key ways. Firstly, it allows us to distinguish between an urge to play in a certain way and behaviour, which can help us better support children's emotional and social development. Secondly, it enables us to plan learning environments that align with children's play schemas, which can significantly enhance their learning and mastery of new concepts.
If you need a refresher on Play Schemas, check out the first newsletter in this series: "An Introduction to Play Schemas"
In this newsletter we’ll cover:
the trajectory schema of play: including observations, activity suggestions and resources to use.
the connecting schema of play : including observations, activity suggestions and resources to use.
the transporting schema of play: including observations, activity suggestions and resources to use.
