Pirate Play with Parents
We’ve been playing pirates.
It’s fun when the grown ups play too.
Then we learn about things;
like a compass.
And how to put on a life jacket
why it’s important to wear one in a boat.
We have help to get dressed in our pirate gear
have fun together.
We learn how to row a boat
and songs to sing together.
As an educator looking at this picture, I really like that mom turned her
chair so she could look face to face at her little one. He is very interested
in what she is saying and doing. Making it more meaningful.
All the parents in the pictures above are spending quality time with their little
ones, enhancing the play but not dominating it. They followed their child's
interest and built on it.
This is an important part of StrongStart;
a time for parents, grandparents and others to come and play with their child
without distractions of everyday life.
