Learning to navigate through the various social areas, we work on eye contact, body language, greetings, how to enter into play and what to do when others don't want to play. We also teach being flexible, perspective taking, reciprocity, sharing and conflict resolution. We use drama, role playing, and structured and unstructured games and activities. Sometimes kids bring their toys and learn to share these. Parents have this hour to network while their children are playing and learning.
