Calendar says July-Brain Says Time to Learn and Play
Summer days are made for kids and play: the brain doesn’t take a vacation when school is out because during play the brain is busier than ever. PLAY is the brain’s favorite way to learn. We can foster children’s brain development by making sure kids get a chance to play.
Following is a page you can print off and put on your fridge or bulletin board. Now, when kids ask, “What can I do?” you will have some ideas ready. Once kids are engaged during play, they will find their own ways to play and things to play with. Learning and development doesn’t take a vacation no matter what the calendar says so go ahead and PLAY.
