Play School Using Real Schoolwork

Playing school is a common form of fantasy play. Children usually enjoy pretending to be the teacher and running an imaginary classroom. The next time your child plays school at home, encourage her to use her actual schoolwork. Pretending to "mark" her own papers will give her a chance to review the work she's already done. Encourage her to use a chalkboard or whiteboard, too, which will provide an added opportunity to interact with the material in a different manner.
