Physical play in early years let children practice new skills and educate them significant life skills. At the same time it aids in developing their body coordination along with strengthening the bones and muscles.
I incorporate play into my every lesson. In the warm up activities, I usually randomly choose a leader to carry out some vigorous movements, it is positive step in improving children’s creativity and fluency. They generate a large number of routine ideas in a short time. The fast and slow rhythm of fitness routine enhances their thinking process and helps them to be fluent. It also leads children to be flexible when they do stretching routine. .
During the skill development, children are able to create different ideas of body movements which leads to fluency. By getting a very unique form of stretching we are able to arouse the sense of originality among kids. It also helps children understand what it means to include others into their group, and to work together to solve a problem.
The Physical activity boosts blood flow to all parts of the body, including the brain. When the brain is supplied with freshly oxygenated blood, concentration, thinking speed and complex reasoning are all enhanced. Physical activity promotes clear thinking and boosts creativity. To think of unique ways of manipulating the props arouses curiosity among kids, which leads to discovery and creativity. It stimulates their imaginations, helps them adapt and solve problems.
During the cooperative group games, children are able to respond to their peers’ feelings while waiting for their turn and sharing materials and experiences.
The innovative play context is ideal for supporting children’s creative and imaginative thoughts because it offers a risk-free environment. Every child has to work together and create new ideas, which means they all need to improvise their thinking. Even if the children are playing in a group, they can still benefit from creating their own ideas.
