MARK MAKING SCHEMAS

February 29 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

default leaf - MARK MAKING SCHEMAS

Children create understanding and knowledge of their world by interacting with the environment and the ‘things’ within it. While they are doing this, we often observe them repeating actions over and over again and see repeated patterns in their play.
In the first half of the 20th century, Jean Piaget recognized organized patterns of behaviour in children’s play and developed his schema theory around how children learn and acquire knowledge through physical and mental actions. In the 1980’s Chris Athey furthered Piaget’s work by identifying clusters of play patterns and developed the concept of schematic play or schema play.

If you would like to find out more about schema play and how to support schema play in your early learning and child care setting then join the ECCDC’s Early Learning Trainer, Ginette Wilson, for this engaging, interactive and fun workshop. There will be opportunities to engage in thought-provoking conversations with fellow Educators and explore a variety of materials and experiences that support schema play.

Session Two: Mark Making Schemas
This second schematic play session will look at schema play through a lens of early Mark Making, a prerequisite for the development of literacy skills, and explore how educators can introduce schema play materials and experiences to their environment to support mark making.
