Robinia Themed Play
Full speed on imagination, cognition, and language development
Themed play is the ticket to exploring and understanding life. Using familiar connotations children are given the opportunity to place themselves in daily situations; filling the car with gas, steering a boat, routine procedures enable children to explore the world from their own perspective. It is the small, well thought out details that trigger imaginations, for example, the addition of a credit card slot on the gas pump, that help encourage organizational skills.
In addition, the presence of an owl, a parrot or an iguana, breaks open new thought processes and by sharing these thoughts and ideas stimulates language and the ability to communicate.
