Loose Parts: Connecting Children Through Loose Parts Play in the School Age Program April 27, 2017
6:30pm-8:00pm
When children interact with Loose Parts, they enter a world of “what if” that promotes the type of thinking that leads to problem solving and reasoning for solutions and it brings a sense of excitement into their play. School age children are skilled at figuring out how to move large and small objects, heavy and fine objects. From building structures to an array of creativity and critical thinking to name but a few. Encouraging children to use resources as they choose can provide a wider range of opportunities than one that is purely adult led. Children playing with loose parts are using more creativity and imagination and developing more skill and competence than they would playing with most modern plastic toys. During this professional learning session, participants will explore various material and ideas for its use and delight in finding the perfect loose parts to introduce to children.
