Fiona and her Gecko friends are in the thick of pretend play, and it looks like she wants to share that juicy pear. Using “real life” experiences and settings allows Fiona and her friends to develop self-help skills and mimic the behaviors they see at home with family. Re-use of safe household items such as the empty spice jar lets exploration feel more authentic. Her teachers can help her explore the differences and similarities between the pear and the pepper, too.
That’s a smart snack, Fiona, thanks for sharing!
