I Will Play with You

Adelina Gotera

For a child, play is joy and pleasure. It is life, exploration, and learning experience vital to his or her growth and healthy development. I'll Play With You narrates the author's play episodes with preschool children and how she uses play as a fun way for preschoolers to learn language, science, mathematics, arts and social skills. Play for preschoolers comes in different forms like sensory play, arts & crafts, music and rhymes, cooperative games, dressing up & pretend play, puppets & dramatic play, water/sand play and more. Play is also used as a strategy to bond with children and for them to adapt positive behaviors. A sad or traumatic past experience usually gives stress and negative emotion to the child which can result in misbehavior. Through fun play with an understanding and creative adult, the child is provided with an outlet for expression and release of negative emotions. Play can facilitate understanding between an adult and a child, resulting in a child's adaptive and positive behavior. This book demonstrates how play can be used as a gentle form of disciple and guidance.
