Back to School…soon

Teachers and staff have head back to school to prepare for the school year to start. With just about a week left before the start of school, what is there left to do on your summer checklist? Well, it should say play, play, play. I am sure there are things to do but playtime should be a priority.  Ben Mardell a researcher for Project Zero writes,

“My take is that any activity can be play or not play. The secret sauce is playfulness.”

Playtime has benefits in intellectual development, social development, emotional development, and physical development. So let’s put playtime at the top of our checklist for this last week of summer.
