Global School Play Day

Yesterday marked one exciting, fun and very educational day in 1st grade. During Global School Play Day, we focused on learning and researching through unstructured play. In the morning we had a "playdate" with our Kindergarten Buddies in Mrs. Newton's room.  Later, we rotated through Mrs. Libby's class, Mrs. Halligan's class and the gym with our K connections.  In the afternoon we had a checkers tournament before heading to 2nd grade and spending time with Mrs. Begin's class.  During the whole day the smiles, opportunities to play, creativity and imagination were endless.  It was truly inspirational to see the smiles, laughter and happiness.  Check it out for yourself:
Hopefully yesterday inspired your family to plan for more unstructured play time during non-school hours and help children’s imagination and creativity to grow both in the classroom and beyond.
