This can be easier said than done as students quite often chop and change in their play during their play. For example, while observing two students play last term, these two started off as parallel play. They were playing with the car toys parallel to each other; with no engagement or interaction with each other. One student then went off to play with the dinosaurs (solitary play) and the other student simply was an onlooker  watched them play but didn't join in. Then one of these students got out the magnetics and they both were then engaged in cooperative play. Students can switch and change where they need to and for the play that benefits them.
Its definitely something to think about... What type of play are your students engaging with? What type of activities promote which type of play in your classroom? Can you easily spot students that are unoccupied or as an onlooker in play? What could you do for them? Check out some of my other playful learning blog posts or resources below!
