It's hard to believe that this is the final week of our book study. We have greatly appreciated the insight you have all shared throughout, not only by reading the book but by implementing the activities with your children, families and colleagues, and sharing your journey. This week, you will be tying it all together: reflecting on the work you've done, and becoming a more intentional teacher. Children love and need to play, but they don't always know how. During the past 8 weeks, you have developed strategies for supporting children's learning through play. Keep up the incredible work that you are doing!
Lisa Murphy (A.K.A. Ooey Gooey Lady), has presented at WECA during the past 2 years. She has a great website that is full of useful articles, resources and blogs. One of my favorite visuals is her "House of Higher Learning". She notes that "The house of higher learning is supported by a foundation of play!".
Enjoy building that foundation.
