Almost all teachers are worried about benchmarks and standards coming from all directions, and oftentimes you'll hear, "I don't have time to play because we have all this work to do."  But authors Kristi Mraz, Alison Porcelli, and Cheryl Tyler see play as the work of children. In this video, they'll convince you.

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."
