I think that the more fun we can make school the better. One of my least favorite things that I hear is that we need to prepare kids for “the real world”, and the “real world” isn’t always fun. I get that, but shesh…just because the world comes with its issues doesn’t mean we can’t make school awesome. I’m thankful that I teach in a school led by a principal (Sue Haney) that wants to make school as magical for kids as possible.
Last week Ms. Haney sent us all an email encouraging us to participate in Global School Play Day with our students. She sends us that email every year, and I’m always excited to get it. My students love Global School Play Day with all their hearts.
In the video below I share our day, my thoughts on play, and a goal that I set every year for my classroom.
