Learning and Play/Play and Learning – a Joyful Cohabitation!

IMG_4083observation deck:steps

The steps/observation deck in our classroom serve many different purposes.  Above you see several children collaborating on a lego project.  Multi layers give a new dimension to the play.  Every week our observation deck/steps take on new meaning and the children show us new and creative ways of using the area.  Enabling children to play, to create, to observe, to collaborate, to listen – what a luxury for this teacher and for his students.  Learning is play; play is learning; and when the two cease cohabitation, learning become laborious.
