Accepting Our Child's Guidance - Concept of Schematic Play

Accepting Our Child's Guidance - Concept of Schematic Play

We can use the concept of schema to better understand and support the development of our children. Schemas are repetitive patterns of behavior that enable children to understand the world around them through play and exploration.
Schematic games are games that children cannot give up with an irresistible desire and play over and over again. While doing this activity, they are highly concentrated and like in another realm, and usually the situation they are in is a deep learning situation. Children are intrinsically motivated to explore their schemas during this activity. Therefore, it is helpful to provide toys and activities that will help children fully explore their schemas. Below you can find common schematic games and the activities and toys that can be chosen to support them.

Connecting and Disconnecting

Toy Selection

    Children in this diagram can be seen doing activities such as building train tracks, doing puzzles, assembling objects, lining up toys, or opening and closing doors. With this type of play, your child tries to figure out how everything fits together.
    Ways to support this scheme: Railroad tracks, road construction, building materials, "interlocking" building materials and puzzles


      Games in this diagram include swinging upside down, sitting up out of a chair, and turning toys to see things from different angles. In doing so, children are actually trying to understand how the world looks from different perspectives.
      Ways to support this schema: walking on bumpy roads, visiting playgrounds with climbing trails and play equipment that will allow them to hang upside down, as well as tools that allow them to see things in different ways, such as mirrors, magnifying glasses, and binoculars.


      Toy Selection

        Children who like to move things from one place to another use either their hands or toys that they can fill, move, and often have a discharge mechanism. Moving things gives them a sense of independence and responsibility, so you may find them eager to help you do chores that involve getting something from point A to point B, such as unloading groceries or carrying clean laundry to the dryer.

        Ways to support this scheme: Miniature carts like strollers or supermarkets, small boxes that can be easily picked up by little hands, a small backpack. Parts in different forms can also be used to support this scheme because they are suitable for repeated loading, transport and unloading. Games that allow children to move objects of various different textures from one container to another can also be used to encourage this scheme.


        Toy Selection

          This is a common diagram that focuses on how objects move. Children in this diagram examine how objects (or their bodies) move through the air. Remember your little one who was constantly throwing food out of the highchair? He was actually learning orbit! Other activities that are part of this diagram are playing with running water, running, throwing a ball, sliding down a slide (or throwing different objects down the slide and following their path).
          Ways to support this scheme: Lots of outdoor playtime, running, playing ball, ball paths, throwing different objects from a high place.


          Toy Selection

          Children working in this diagram enjoy things like making patterns, lining up toys, and placing objects in different ways. They often spend a lot of time getting the sorting job done perfectly.
          Ways to support this scheme: Objects in different forms that can be used to make patterns, such as grapat mandala pieces, small cars or dolls.


            Toy Selection

            This schematic is all about packaging objects. Playing this schematic game, you can see children wrap themselves in a blanket, stuff boxes with different items, or swaddle their dolls.
            Ways to support this schema: Provide them with lots of play objects that allow them to pack themselves or their toys, such as blankets, fabric, silk, boxes. In addition, toys such as nesting bowls can be used to support this scheme.


              Toy Selection

              This is similar to envelopment, but more about creating a boundary. For example, children working in this diagram will build a barn for livestock or fence it off.
              Ways to support this scheme: Large boxes, blocks that can be used to create fences or borders, and similar building materials.


              This diagram includes anything that goes and rotates in a circular motion. Wheels, washing machines, carousels are part of the spinning scheme.
              Ways to support this diagram: Consider providing your child with many opportunities to play with spinning tops and wheel toys. Building materials such as screwdrivers, nuts and bolts would also be appropriate to encourage this scheme.
