    Learning Goals: Literacy, Emergent Reading, Numeracy, Counting, Mutually-Directed Play

      • Prepare cue cards for the students with hints about the location of the missing items (ie. Dinosaurs).
      • Hide the items in these locations to set up the play.
      • Initiate the play by prompting students to read the cue cards, support their team work, and ask guiding questions to help them find the missing items.

    We are the Play Learning Lab, run by Dr. Angela Pyle at the Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education/University of Toronto.
