The children love imaginary play and one of the popular themes in our three and four year old class has been wild animal chase. They adopt the animal's attributes and play their roles with energy and enthusiasm. The children may be wild tigers or bears, cats or dogs. They may be the pursuers or the pursued. The noise is impressive, but the creativity and joy is sheer delight!

Once the children have played with our toys, they find ways to push boundaries and create new experiences. The teeter totter is a case in point. After experiencing rocking solo or with one or two other children, they set out to see what else they could do. Could they turn it upside down and balance? Check! Could they let go of the handle without falling? Check! Could they flip it over their head? Check, check check!
