Importance of Sand and Water Play

  • Social & Emotional Domains
  • Cognitive Domain
  • Creativity/Imagination skills
  • Language skills
  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Science skills
  • Math skills

Block Play

 

 

  • Imagination : Children can follow their own plan, or they can share a friend’s vision and work together to create something new.
  • Mathematics : Important concepts and skills are practiced and strengthened through block play, including length, measurement, comparison, number, estimation, symmetry, balance.
  • Development in all areas : Block play requires fine and gross motor skills. Blocks enhance children’s problem-solving abilities, mathematics skills, and language and literacy abilities. And constructing “creations” builds self-esteem and feelings of success.
