Children Learn through Playing
Child's play is deeply formative with learning that cannot be measured or quantified. This is true of the ways that middle and high school students learn through play also. See my earlier post (April)
"Yes, and...Embracing the Awkward" to read further about how play can influence different areas of learning.
This is all the more reason for states to disgard the current Common Core and its blizzard of tests, worksheets, micro-managed reading and writing and overall tedium.
