Full Curriculum Play Skills Asking Others to Play

Asking Others to Play

Initiating play with others is essential for joining playgroups and friends, especially since most friendships at young ages are formed at recess. It requires seeking someone or a group, asking, joining, and including others. Accepting no for an answer when others decline your invitation to play is also taught as a social grace.
