Kindergarten Readiness – Conversations with Guest Experts #3

For each radio show on Learn and Play with Mrs A, I take notes because I’m learning so much about kids and kindergarten readiness from fascinating guests who are experts in a variety of areas. Each of them is passionate about kids and loves the work, or maybe that’s play? Here’s a play-of-the-day suggested from our play-of-the-week conversations and a little information about these awesome guests.

developing kindergarten readiness and creativity in kidsThe importance of creativity has been recognized in industry and business. But where does creativity start? With young children, of course. Heather Boyd, educator whose Master’s thesis explored the issue of kids and creativity, was a guest on Learn and Play with Mrs A. In the conversation, she mentioned a wonderful little book about a bunny determined to be creative called It’s Not A Box, by Antoinette Portis. A video of this wonderful story is just over a minute long.

For a creative play-of-the-day can you give your child a box? Any size or shape. Let your child create something with the box. Can you blast off with some creativity?
