Learning Through Play


If there is one thing that really, really irks me about "Every Child Ready To Read" (and there's a lot to choose from) , it is this insistence on making sure that every single thing you do is packed with "tips for parents" to the point of analyzing finger plays for "this one teaches using all 5 fingers" and the like.

Last month the kids were doing one of my anarchistic crafts--stringing pony beads on pipe cleaners and twisting them as they wanted into "holiday decorations" and one of the moms commented, "And they're practicing fine motor skills!"

Yup. I didn't need to tell the moms that. They saw it.
More importantly, the kids had no idea that they were learning something.
They were just having fun.

Just saying...............
