Today, my class participated in Global School Play Day!
Thank you to the Bedley Brothers and Twitter for introducing me to this project! The power of a Personal Learning Network (PLN) triumphs again!
I was heavily influence to participate in #GSPD after listening to this eye opening presentation:

On Monday, I emailed parents, shared "The Decline of Play" video, and asked for games to be brought in for our #GSPD event. On Wednesday, we had a few curricular blocks, but we were able to have two solid play sessions.
The sessions were sensational!

First, we talked about the rules.
There would only be ☝, the Golden Rule.
This was a funny Twister game!
As these students were setting up the game, they used the commutative property. See it?
Even putting this game away was fun!
Working the loom!
What do you notice about this game?
How do you play?
Look at super cool creation on her head!
Learning all about the Rubix Cube!
A fun card game played on the Twister mat!
Dominoes, rain forest style!
It was fun to play with our Journeys buddies! They are only five years old.
