This week, we noticed a much bigger shift from parallel play to group play in the 2B class. This has included "copy cat / monkey see monkey do" mirroring behaviors (as seen in the paint video below),  group play in dyads and triads with cars, animals, and in the kitchen, and group games like hide and seek - a game that Oliver initiated today without any ideas from teachers (in the video below). Moving to group play is an important developmental milestone in socialization. In the link below, you can see ideas on what to expect and how to facilitate your child's socialization skills.
