Create a flyer as a response to the parent defending play
You are a teacher in a classroom and are approached by a parent who is concerned about all the “playing” going on in the classroom. The parent is concerned her child will not be ready to move on next year, because all she sees is the children playing with play-dough, dress-up clothes, sand and water tables, and blocks. The parent would like to see more “academics” in your classroom. You will create a flyer as a response to the parent defending play in the classroom. You will be able to use this flyer as a handout to all the parents in your classroom. Your flyer should be research-based, it should include the appropriate citations and references, and it should include at least two resources from the Kaplan Library. Be sure to include how play addresses learning in all of the developmental domains and different learning styles, and how it fosters skill development.
