Global School Play Day

20 Jan

My classes will be participating in Global School Play Day on Wednesday, February 4.  Join us in celebrating play with students from around the globe.

According to Psychology Today, “Global School Play Day is more than just a day of play.  It’s a day of acknowledgment that play matters, that kids need play, that our society has gone amok with testing and drilling and making kids sit in seats and has forgotten what childhood is all about.  This is for affirming the child’s right and need to play.  It is a day for parents, educators, playground directors, city planners—for everyone—to think about what they can do to make free play once again a major part of childhood.”
