Day of Play

Last week many classes particpated in the Global Day of Play.  Here are some student's words about the occasion.

Siena:  I did enjoy it.  We got to express our creativity with play.  I played a Bounce Connect 4 game Ms. Ewart brought from home.  I was practicing bouncing a ball accurately.  Then I played Clue.  In Clue you have to really pay attention to wat people say and do.  One simple clue can solve the whole mystery.

Brianna:  I played Jenga.  I had to use skills to guess what the actions and reactions there would be when moving the blocks.  That's Newton's Third Law - for every action there is an opposite reaction.

Anmol: I was playing soccer with my friends.  It was fun because everyone was playing fairly.  Some people were not that good at it, including me, but I noticed I got better.  We also played Monopoly, Battleship and Twiester.  We had to make plans, use strategies, be cooperative and competative.  I think it was a good idea to bring play to school.  Some kids don't get a chance to play, to communicate, relax and have fun because their lives are too busy and stressful.
