Opportunities For Locomotion
1. How can adults encourage opportunities for locomotion? What types of materials and experiences should parents and teachers provide? 2. Does your image of an “ideal” infant or toddler include a child who is always active and on the move? Discuss what has influenced this image. Do you yourself prefer to be engaged in activity or inactivity? How do you think this will contribute to the kinds of motor activities you make available to infants and toddlers?
