Global School Play Day 2018

  • On Wednesday, February 7th, 82 fourth graders participated in the fourth annual Global School Play Day, which is a day of unstructured play.  Students were able to choose their activities, and were not allowed to use any electronic devices.  Research shows the importance of play in children's physical and mental health.  It helps to boost language development, problem solving, risk management and independent learning skills.  It also helps focus and academic success.  Children used turn-taking skills to play board games, showed their creativity by painting and drawing, and used design skills to build structures and patterns using linker cubes and pattern blocks.  At the end of the day, the students chose to throw frisbees.  Who knew play could be so much fun!
