Description

Product Description

Play is serious business.

Whether it''s reenacting a favorite book (comprehension and close reading), negotiating the rules for a game (speaking and listening), or collaborating over building blocks (college and career readiness and STEM), Kristi Mraz, Alison Porcelli, and Cheryl Tyler see every day how play helps students reach standards and goals in ways that in-their-seat instruction alone can''t do. And not just during playtimes. "We believe there is play in work and work in play," they write. "It helps to have practical ways to carry that mindset into all aspects of the curriculum." In Purposeful Play , they share ways to:

  • optimize and balance different types of play to deepen regular classroom learning
  • teach into play to foster social-emotional skills and a growth mindset
  • bring the impact of play into all your lessons across the day.

"We believe that play is one type of environment where children can be rigorous in their learning," Kristi, Alison, and Cheryl write. So they provide a host of lessons, suggestions for classroom setups, helpful tools and charts, curriculum connections, teaching points, and teaching language to help you foster mature play that makes every moment in your classroom instructional.

Play doesn''t only happen when work is over. Children show us time and time again that play is the way they work. In Purposeful Play, you''ll find research-driven methods for making play an engine for rigorous learning in your classroom.

I am a school counselor and used this book as supporting evidence for a grant to purchase materials for an extended PLAY time for our kinders. I really appreciate how Krisitine Mraz took the stigma out of the word play in respect to early-childhood curriculum. She gives stunning evidence and concrete recommendations for building meaningful play into early-childhood curriculum to support rigor and growth-mindset. I have been waiting for a long time for a supporting body of evidence for what I have intrinsically known is best for kids. I am so happy to have this knowledgeable and inspirational resource.

Play provides critical thinking
Reviewed in the United States on July 8, 2018
This book discusses the research behind why we should add play into our classrooms and HOW you can do that with a few little (and some BIG changes). Play is not only fun, but also is the vehicle for critical thinking in the classroom.

Proof that play is important!
Reviewed in the United States on August 25, 2018
Best book I’ve read on the importance of play in the classroom. It is very easy to read but has the research to back their claims. I have recommended this book to all of my Transitional Kindergarten colleagues.
