Fairy Tales: Real and Make Believe
The experiences planned during this month will focus on real and make-believe. Many young children have difficulty separating reality and make-believe. This theme is designed to help the children explore four well-known stories, while at the same time comparing them to what might really happen.
Young childre are often confused about what is actually real and what they imagine. They often have fears about monsters and the dark. Their imaginations are growing and they often change what actually happens in their lives to match what they wish would happen. Using one's imagination is important to the long-term ability to deal with events that will be experienced throughout one's life. Encourage your child's creativity and imagination by listening to the stories he/she tells and reading books each evening.
