In free play there are always educational games where they develop the children’s memory of colours, shapes, maths and language in a fun way. Most outside free play will include a sand pit, a water bath and a jungle gym, which helps the children develop their senses. The indoor free play will have a game area where they will play with play dough or slime, which also makes use of their senses. When a daily programme is set out it is always balanced and that is what teachers are there for. This is done by looking at each child in the class and what they need, and then the time is allocated accordingly. So the time will be allocated to indoor and outdoor activities, free play, and work activities done in the class individually and in groups, as well as activities where the children must work quietly (c) The role of the teacher during free play. This is not developed in children who just do inactive work and who play alone, so therefore the teacher has to be present to supervise and advise the children that they need to interact with each other and include each other in the different activities. Many people think that teachers are only a pair of eyes during free play which is incorrect. It’s what teachers do with their eyes that are important during free play. Teachers should not only focus on the intellectual work but also help the children develop in other abilities. They have to watch the children when they are playing during free play to see that each child is getting a balance of the different activities. In order to do this the teacher should plan the daily program with activities that abide by a specific guideline. The teacher needs to plan a programme that is appropriate for both physical and mental playing. The teacher needs to then supply the means to do this, by nicely putting out the different equipment for each of the games, with an ample amount of space around each game for the children to move freely.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
