We Will Be Playing in English for Global School Play Day on Friday

I am so excited to be doing Global School Play Day with all students this coming Friday, February 5th.  While the official day this year is the 3rd, we thought it would be a great way to finish the week and celebrate the achievements of the students.

So what is Global School Play Day?  It is a day meant to celebrate unstructured play, while building community.  All students are therefore invited to bring anything they wish to play with to school that day for English. The only restrictions: they must bring toys and these toys may NOT require batteries or electricity. No devices. Ideas are Legos, blocks, trucks, cars, racetracks, playing cards, empty cardboard boxes, markers, jigsaw puzzles, blankets (for forts), social games (charades, Pictionary, etc.) The only exception on the electronics rule would be a board game that has an electronic timer, an electronics play kit, or similar. 

Students can bring toys in any time before Friday.  I am excited to have this day of playing with the kids.  To see more info on this global event, please go here.
