Gillispie “Gem” of the Week

IMG_1220During the Cypress Room’s play dough time this week, students practiced their sharing skills and good manners through conversation with one another.

“Maris, can I have more play dough please?” Ava asked. 

“Sure, here you go,” Maris responded. 

“Thank you, Maris,” Ava replied.

Later… 

“Ian? Can I have more play dough please?” Ava asked.

“Here…you can have all of it,” Ian answered. 

“Thank you, Ian. I’m making a beautiful dress,” Ava said.

Through play, the children are exposed to a variety of educational opportunities that encourage social skill development, self-expression, communication, logical thinking, and problem-solving.
