We often say, “play is the work of the child.” But do we really believe in the power of play and its impact on a child’s development and learning trajectory? In this age of accountability, it’s easy to lose sight of what matters most, and begin to value formal instructional approaches and the teaching of isolated skills. This webinar will provide research on the efficacy of creating embedded learning opportunities and the importance of being a good play partner. Recommended practices for supporting the whole child, and strategies on how to be good play partner, even for those “hard to reach” children, will be provided.
