The first two days of our splendid school year have happened and they were divine! We were quiet, shy, nervous, but ready to do the work of children which is play. There is so much research about the importance of play in childhood, the long term benefits for children, and I will get into that soon enough. For now just know that “Play Happens Here”
The picture above says it all! This picture was taken within the first two hours of school starting. Just to create this image children had to use these skills; ability to share, negoitate, work together, cooperate, and problem-solve
They represtented different objects, compared, discussed height, gravity, balance, symmetry, cause and effect.
“Play is the highest form of research. “ ~ Albert Einstein
