Whether children should take part in organized activities or engage in creative and imaginative play is arguable on both fronts. Creative play allows for more independent thinking and gives a child the ability to engage in activities that they choose to do, and learn how to solve their own problems, rather than activities they are directed to do, which hinders their ability to solve problems on their own. Organized activities allow children to enage in activities in which they would play a part in a larger group, which allows for a child to feel more involved and important. Although both sides are arguable, allowing a child to take time to spend on creative play will allow for the individual to learn about themselves and their personal interests.
There are many advantages to child-initiated play. Children’s emotional development is particularly supported because children are able to make their own choices. They also gain independence skills as they can help themselves to resources. This type of play helps children to be creative as they have to develop their own ideas of how to play indoors and outdoors.
Both Play and Leisure are vital components of a child's life as a range of stimulating play and leisure opportunities will support the physical emotional sensory and spiritual and intellectual growth of the child. It helps them to form and sustain relationships and also improves communication, educational development and achievement.
There are many factors on how play can affect the child, as Brussoni, Olsen, Pike and Sleet (2012) said children learn about societal roles, norms, and values and develop physical and cognitive competencies, creativity, self-worth and efficacy. When children play it helps them develop the sense of intrinsic interests, how to make decisions, problem solving, following the rules, regulate emotions and maintain and develop peer relationships. If children are restricted from free play then it might potentially lead to lifelong
Do you think it's better to let children play creatively or more organized? Some people may think it's better to let the children play creatively,but some think it's best that they keep the children's play organized.
I am Kainan Ducote,and I beileve it is important that children are able to get both imanagintive and creative play. Reasoning for saying this is because with creative play it helps them learn how to provide for them selfs. Another reason is like the passage says "They learn to lead ,follow,problem solve,and negotiate." It is very important to know how to get along with others all threw life. It is also very important to know how to negotiate if you ask me. With these reasons it also helps toughen them up.
Is it Important for a child to play? The obvious answer would be yes but what constitutes play? Free unstructured play? Structured play? What differences do these types of play involve and which is better? The question why should my child play and why can’t they do it alone comes to mind to many parents often or is sometimes not even thought about in their busy lives to keep the child provided for. It is often at the back of our minds that children enjoy themselves while making sure they have everything needed to survive is right at the forefront.
Childhood development is very important, people tend to have different opinions on what is best for the developmental process of a child. Some believe organized activities are most important for healthy development, others suggest creative, unorganized play is best. As you continue to read you will hear why it is imortant from both sides of the issue, and why I believe free play is more imortant.
There are people who think that creative play is better for children and there are people who think that organized activities are better. I don't exactly know if one is better than the other, but I think that organized activities are better. Creative play seems great but it doesn't seem like it improves the way children think as much as organized activities do. Organized activities gives children the knowledge on how to be more like an adult.
Based on relevant reading and personal experience outline the theoretical rationale for play in the development of young children.
I agree with allowing children to "play creatively". Playing creatively could enhance children's social skills, along with critical thinking and problem soloving skills. Along with the statement made previously, children, to a certain extent would have freedom to choose activities based on their interests.
Today, Many believe that children should be more focused on creative play other than, organized activities or vise versa. Playing with a more creative play out look gives the child or children confort to express themselves, interact with peers, and become independent thinkers. When on the other hand, some believe more organized activites are better with children bceause, it helps with children developing healthy attitudes towards them selves now and in the future.Along with the many diffrent programs a child can still attend and have fun doing while learning resposiblity.
There are benefits for children who play in organized activites and in creatively activites. Really there is nothing wrong with either one. Many people have there own inpinion but there is no or right answer. What activety would you have your child or children do?
Creative play give children the confidence to make decisions based on how they feel. It gives them the inner strength to feel good about changing the rules if needed. Children need this "skill" to help them selves be better at being themselves.
It's the aspect of all children's development. (Essa, 2014 p.36). Play helps children socially practice verbal and nonverbal skills and respond to peer feelings. This can be done by negotiating different role playing and help the child understand the feelings of the role they are playing and the person(s) they are playing with. (Smith, 2014, para 2) It also can teach them to take turns, share their materials and experiences. (Smith, 2014, para 2) Play can also help understand the point of view by working through conflicts of materials or rules in the classroom. (Smith, 2014, para 2) Play can help emotionally cope a child who is afraid of something. By creating an imaginary character who is not afraid of the dark, for example, can show them what that character does to overcome their fears and can create the idea in the child's mind of what to do when they are scared. Play is the way the child will understand the world better. (Essa, 2014
