So many times I've seen play taken out of early childhood classrooms, and this is heartbreaking. Strict standards have made it difficult to keep what I call "fun centers" and recess in the school day. Has this happened to you? I'd love to hear how you incorporate play in your students' day.
Now, do YOU play? Not only is it important for children to have that precious downtime, but adults need it as well. Do you have a hobby that rejuvenates you? I love to read, watch movies with my family, and play around on the Wii. What do you?
Thank you for sharing!
