I am thrilled to join the Genius of Play(@geniusofplay) program as an expert today
I firmly believe in the magic of play
And it will be my privilege to help parents discover this magic through this wonderful initiative.
Today I write on -
The role of PLAY in increasing LEARNING CAPACITY in children during SOCIAL DISTANCING.
This is a topic I have wanted to write on for a long time
Almost every day I have parents reach out to me because they are worried about how their children are missing out on learning because of the pandemic.
Ofcourse they are worried about their children not learning reading, writing and math -
But they are also very worried about how their children are missing out on learning emotional and social skills.
The worry is real and justified
And the only solution is PLAY.
In this article I describe the 6 kinds of play that you must weave into everyday life to ensure effective learning in the time of social distancing.
Do read and share with other worried parents.
