EYLFPLP_E-Newsletter_No1.pdf

The focus of this first e-Newsletter is
on play because the idea of ‘play as a
legitimate space in which young children
learn’ has been a central belief for early
childhood education over a very long time
and because the role of play in children’s
learning has not always been fully
understood.

MERGA33_Symposium_BobisEtAl.pdf

This paper considers examples of situations in mathematics learning that are often described as play-based and critiques these in light of conceptualisations of play focusing on children’s processes and dispositions. The potential of play in mathematics learning is investigated and the question asked as to whether it matters if children make mathematics play. The role of early childhood educators in using play to build on children’s existing
mathematical understandings is explored.

Earlychildhood NEWS is the online resource for teachers and parents of young children, infants to age 8.

 

Play is an active, child-initiated process that supports children’s learning throughout the domains of physical, social/emotional, creative, science, math, language, and literacy. By taking advantage of the highly engaging nature of children’s self-sustained play, and using this as a jumping off point for a deeper exploration of the science concepts involved, teachers can generate curriculum units that both integrate child-centered play and maximize children’s learning throughout these domains.

Play: It’s the way young children learn

Play promotes school success in many ways

Researchers are finding more and more connections between children’s play and the learning and social development that helps them succeed in school. For example, pretend play helps children learn to think abstractly and to look at things from someone else’s perspective. Pretend play is also connected to early literacy, mathematical thinking, and problem-solving.
