Understanding the schema theory and how it relates to children’s learning and behaviour offers educators an opportunity to provide materials to support play patterns that are often misunderstood as ‘inappropriate behaviour’.
We will begin to identify what could be described as urges that young children often display during play. We will uncover patterns of behavior we can then plan for. Additionally, we will gain an understanding of the significance loose parts (intelligent materials, beautiful junk) can play in complimenting children’s learning and behaviour patterns. Our time together will be hands-on, providing many visuals and examples to support a thorough understanding of schemas as well as exploring the materials every program needs.
