Fred Rogers once said, "Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning, but for children, play IS serious learning." Play is a powerful and important activity. It has a natural and positive influence on children's social, physical, emotional and cognitive development. We don't need to pit play against academics! What we need to teach may not always be a choice, but HOW we teach can be. Play is its own method of instruction! In this full-day workshop, we will look at the neurological link between play and learning for young children, and how we can use intentionally planned, guided, and purposeful play-based learning experiences with them in order to foster learning opportunities that will help our students to best meet the rigorous academic learning standards set for them.

Participants will have an hour lunch break and are asked to bring or obtain lunch on their own.

The research indicates that students who do so are more engaged with their learning.
