Pretend play strengthens learning by involving many areas of development at the same time: physical, social, emotional, math, music, language and literacy. Through pretend play with others the Tiny Tigers include creating mental images. Their literacy skills are developing, too, as they begin to use symbolic thinking and language to organize simple actions into more complicated sequences and pretend situations. This lesson highlights pretend play activities that engage many parts of the Tiny Tigers’ brains at the same time, offering opportunities for your child to learn and practice both concrete and abstract thinking skills.
