I have learned to provide children to open – ended experiences. I need to allow children more time to engage in open -ended play which I now know help encourages and supports children social and emotional development . I will try to use more open -ended materials like blocks, recycled books , tubes, and loose parts and sand. I learned that children can gain knowledge by scaffolding. As a provider I should explore and experience the materials with the children more often. I need to let the children guide the play and lessons sometimes and not always teach directed.
