Types of play
  • Different types of play have different benefits
  • Functional play
  • Constructive play
  • Symbolic play
  • Games with rules
  • Extending play
  • If you pretend, children will begin to pretend
    too
  • Begins as functional becomes more symbolic
  • Unimaginative play immature play
  • Games with rules can be symbolic

Mirror neurons and play
  • What is the connection between mirror neurons and
    play?
  • What do children pay attention to?
  • Role of emotions
  • Development of feeling/thoughts

Play and Self-Regulation
  • Rapid growth in pre-frontal cortex where
    self-regulation occurs
  • Self-regulation predicts academic performance in
    1st grade more than cognitive performance
  • A child from at risk family who has
    self-regulation does better than even middle
    class child who doesnt possess these skills
  • No self-regulationyou dont know if you know
    something unless the teacher says you do

10
Self-Regulation
  • Marshmallow Experiment http//www.youtube.com/wat
    ch?v6EjjsPyIEOY
  • Self-regulation involves
  • Inhibitory and effortful self-control
  • Working memory
  • Cognitive flexibility

11
self-regulation Changes the brain
  • Being regulated by another person (to internalize
    standards). Teacher regulation is not the same as
    self-regulation and this is apparent when
    children misbehave out of the view of the
    teacher.
  • Regulated other people (shows the child is
    thinking about the rules/standards and applying
    them). This is often seen in tattling.
  • Self-regulating. This occurs when children
    voluntarily apply rules to self-not mere
    obedience.
