When I am…4
Four-year-olds are physically active and love to jump, dance, throw balls, and run. They are mastering their fine motor coordination and, at the end of the year, may be able to write their own name. They may also recognize a few simple words such as “on” or “off” and they are beginning to have fun with numbers.
Four-year-olds enjoy playing with other children and are now having conversations with both peers and adults. They are curious about the world around them and are beginning to understand the roles people play in their community. During imagination play, they may pretend to be a “mommy,” “daddy,” “policeman,” and so on.
