Global School Playday 2016!

If your class was lucky enough to have Media on Wednesday, Feb 3rd, then they got to participate in Global School Playday 2016! This was an awesome chance to have students engage in "unstructured play" to have fun, help build relationships, practice life skills such as patience, turn taking, perseverance, strategy and problem solving. I took notes on what the student had to say about their experience in our debriefing session and compiled them into this word cloud for free from Word it Out.
