Four years old are very social creatures. They have mastered the art of self-advocacy, and they enjoy spending time with their peers doing various activities. The focus of most play is strengthening their group communication skills. Fine motor skills may still be challenging as they learn to hold a pencil correctly, tie shoes, and cut with scissors. Teachers spend time focusing on how to properly form letters as children begin handwriting. Letters are no longer just being identified, children are now blending those sounds to begin reading and writing. Math, Science, and Dramatic Play are incorporated into center time through the use of educational table toys and computer games.
