Early childhood educators know that children learn the best and the most through their play. We are trained to see the learning and the different “content areas” within the play, and then ask good open-ended questions to enhance the children’s learning. Here is a video of simple block play experience with a 4 1/2 year old. Notice how I interact with her, ask questions and expand on her ideas. There is a TON of learning happening in this experience. Can you find the Math, Science, Social Studies and ELA?
