Hi, this is Daniella Buettner with the Right
Start in Sherman Oaks on behalf of Expert Village. In this clip we’ll be talking about
cooperative play. Cooperative play really involve games. Games foster cooperation in
interaction with an objective of achieving a common goal. The best way to teach this
is to model right behavior. So we have many different types of games. One of the most
popular is Goodnight Moon, this is the classic that most people recognize because it’s a
story time book you read to your children. This game is ages 2 to 6. We have a new game,
it’s the Ladybug game. This is ages 3 and up. This is actually a multiple award winner
and it was created by a 1st Grader. So this is definitely a game that most kids understand.
There is no reading required for most of our games. So it’s easy for the child to play
with the game and interpret the play on their own. This is a Caterpillar Race game. This
is a game where both children win and the caterpillars just race each other to the finish
line. And one of my favorite items is playing cards that are essential for child’s play
but it is very hard for a small hand to hold the cards. So we have the little card holder;
the children, all they have to do is slip the card right into the holder and it holds
all of them for them and they just have to grasp the handle.
