Purposeful Play_SM_MG5D3801

In Purposeful Play, Kristi Mraz, Alison Porcelli, and Cheryl Tyler list four different types of play that kids engage in throughout the day. Each type of play has its specific context, and utilizing those contexts in the classrooms help you ignite deep and joyful learning.

Purposeful Play: A Teacher's Guide to Igniting Deep and Joyful Learning Across the Day is the newest book from authors Kristi Mraz, Alison Porcelli, and Cheryl Tyler. "We believe there is play in work and work in play," write the three coauthors. "It helps to have practical ways to carry that mindset into all aspects of curriculum."
