Children at this age 3 and 4 years of age are very active and have lots of energy.  They need to have lots of opportunities to practice the new skills they are trying to master.  Preschoolers are learning to play games that have rules and guidelines.  They need to use their imaginations to create new and wonderful games.  As an educator, it is your job to provide the necessary materials and opportunities for them to accomplish their new skills.
