Helping children expand their capacity to engage with others
Co-operative play is an essential stage of child development. When children are given the opportunities to play with other they are; working, planning sharing, taking on roles, engaging in creativity, problem solving and developing health connections with others. This skill of collaboration enhances language development and teaches children about cultural society.
The objective of this resource pack is to help children identify the importance of playing with others through co-operative play. Ideal for children that may struggle with social situations, or need to develop the skill of working with others, rather than alongside. It contains a selection of images that represent individual activities and those that need others to work. For example, you can go swimming on your own – but it’s more fun when you go with others.
