Learning through Play and Creative Learning #28

I really enjoy watching my 5 year old son play. He is learning so much simply by using his imagination and the questions he asks as he plays.

Lincoln Logs and Peg People make for great storytelling in which he learns
character development, and that each story has a beginning, middle, and end.

Board games help him learn strategy and counting skills.
This game has numbered squares so each time he rolls
the dice, he practices his addition skills.

What little child doesn't love a box they can fit in? Here Shane is making
his space ship. As he talks about his adventures, he asks questions about
space such as, "How many planets are there?" or "Why do we float in space?"
