A dynamic forum focused on the experience of childhood and the process of learning
Big Body Rough and Tumble Play
We know that the body is a main vehicle and tool for learning in early childhood, yet we often ask children to "slow down," "stop touching that," or "sit still," because we think/believe/forget (insert your own reasoning here) that very key principle - children need to move to learn. And that includes big, powerful expression from children! During this Gathering, we will look at how big-body AND rough-and-tumble play support key learning areas in early childhood that span beyond just the physical domain.
