Time Together: Learning to Play with Young Children [Video and Facilitator's Guide]
Carrie Sharp, Rae Latham, Linda Freedman, Christina King
Designed for early childhood educators, speech-language pathology students, and parents, this 30-minute videotape recording helps adults understand their role in play and shows how to join play, keep children involved, and support the natural process of learning that is part of every play experience. It teaches simple techniques that help all adults become good play partners, including: when to join a child's play and when to step back, determining the level of involvement that is appropriate, how to follow the child's lead during play and ways to avoid taking over a child's play, and how to help children focus on their play so they can stay involved to explore, discover, and learn more. A viewer's guide discusses how children develop physical, thinking, and language skills through play, and the benefits of adult involvement. A facilitator's guide provides background material, program objectives, workshop ideas and activities, and an excerpt from the video script. (Contains 12 references.)
