Global School Play Day was a SUCCESS!

The students in Room 101 had an AWESOME time playing today! Global School Play Day was a huge SUCCESS at Pine Glen. All kindergarten students commented on how FUN school was today. They all enjoyed being able to make their own choices and play whatever they wanted. The two hours flew by. The discussions at lunch were all about how they all LOVED their morning playing. We need to remember that children need time to PLAY! 

Though our morning was unstructured,many staff were involved supporting and modeling communication and social skills.  Students practiced cooperation, turn taking and respect of differences.  Our mathematical counting skills and abilities to notice similarities and differences were reinforced too!  We also worked on caring for our own and others equipment and cleaning up after ourselves. So many communication/interpersonal skills are needed to play cooperatively. We were very proud of our students today.
