It’s Work Together Wednesday—time to build something together! When children build together, they explore math and science concepts and develop their social and early literacy skills.
The process of collaborating with others to create something provides the foundation for skills children will need to succeed as adults in the workplace. Learning to take turns, working as a team, finding solutions, giving and receiving feedback, and getting along with others are all important skills required for a strong workforce.
Today, work with your child to build something, whether it’s a block tower or a pillow fort. You can use all kinds of creative materials. Ask questions to inspire critical thinking, such as “What do you think will happen if we put this here?” Head over to NAEYC.org for more Week of the Young Child Resources.
