Play is very important to preschool-aged children. During play children build fine motor and gross motor skills; language skills while communicating with peers, teachers and parents; self-confidence and attention skills while trying an activity over and over to complete a task; social skills while sharing and taking turns; and they learn creativity when given a block or art materials to explore. In Mrs. Manley’s class, we have been learning a LOT and having fun while playing (especially when we are stuck inside during this cold, snowy spell!)
