Children often have malleable minds that adapt to new experiences and learning opportunities. At PlayTogether NYC Preschool focus is on educating children through a play-based curriculum that helps them have fun learning with their peers. Through spontaneous humor, having fun has become a common theme with these preschool classes in NYC.Children usually find humor in things that adults feel are not so funny. However, laughing can actually help kids to both retain what they have learned and make the best of it. Elements of child humor usually involve surprise. The surprise is what they find funny and at PlayTogether, our students love to laugh. The kids at the preschool came up with a new joke this year and it is often referenced during free play in the classroom. “1, 2, 3…and a chicken”“1, 2, 3, 4, 5…and a chicken!” PlayTogether preschoolers love this joke, because the kids often don’t know where their friends will insert the chicken after the numbers. The children laugh and laugh, and as they play with others, they actually increase their social skills! Knock, knock jokes are also a great way to get children in the mood to laugh. Often, the children do know who’s there, but the humorous exercise targets delayed gratification and teaches children to wait for the answer. Simple jokes and exercises such as this can easily be translated into fundamental learning strategies they can use later on in life. PlayTogether NYC, located on the Upper West Side offers one of the most comprehensive play-based education programs as a preschool alternative.
