Both articles I am posting tonight deal with free play in a primary classroom, but this article deals with the parent side of things a little more. Every year I have parents that are completely divided on what is best for the students' in the classroom. Every year, I am continuing to learn and grow about what is best for the young learners' as well. Some parents want more (of everything), some want less. Ultimately, I want these young learners to enjoy coming to school, to explore this new world they have stepped into, to create and to learn. Everything we do is and can be a learning experience!
So what is the answer? This article addresses one school where parents took action. A Push for More Play Time
