1. Watch the following video clip from You Tube

This describes different types of play–solitary, associative, cooperative, and competitive. Link these types of play to examples that you have witnessed with chidlren and describe how that play impacts physical, psychosocial, or cognitive development.

2. I am going to give you a case study and I want you to determine what you think is the best response regarding the bed-wetting.

Mandi is 8 years of age and has been placed in a foster home after the incarceration of both parents due to manufacture and distribution of illegal substances. Mandi had previously had trouble with wetting the bed about one or two times per week. She has now been in the foster home for over two months and the bed-wetting has not decreased but remained steady with Mandi typically wetting the bed every night. You are the foster parent and this causes embarassment for Mandi and extra work for you. What do you do? Describe what steps you would follow to address this issue. How would your methods differ from what might have been done in the past?

3. Give an example of how kids respond to parents and teachers when they are at the concrete stage of thinking according to Piaget? How would a parent or teacher alter their directions to avoid the problems of chidlren taking them in a literal manner. For example I had told my son not to open the front door when he was at home for a short time after school with his older sister. I arrived home and found kids in the house and asked him why he had disobeyed. He looked surprised and said, “I did not open the front door. I had them come to the back door.” My directions were quickly made to include all doors, windows, garage, etc. so he knew that he was not to allow anyone in the house until I was home.

Now you think about what you have expereinced with Concrete thinking and share with the class.
