The Right Curriculum for Young Children: Play

Never underestimate the value of play as an educational tool. A good kindergarten program should focus on active play that involves discussions and artistic projects to enhance a child's creativity and reasoning skills. Crafts can delight children for hours and will build their independence and self esteem. Another fun learning activity is to have children distinguish the difference between similar verbs - for example: walk, trot, march, strut, prance - by acting out the meaning of the word.
Their will be laughter smiles and learning all at once. When a learning activity is organically integrated into a fun project, it will enhance the child's love of learning and enthusiasm to explore on his or own time. Even though textbooks and the educational material that needs to be taught is done in a linear way it's up to the teachers how they want to interpret and teach the information. A teacher with creativity is an invaluable element of a successful educational system.
