Purposeful Play: Thinking About The Processes In Play

Purposeful Play_MG5D3767

In the classroom, when play is happening, it's incredibly spontaneous. "Really powerful play," says Kristi Mraz in this video, "has little explosions of change happening throughout it." While that may be overwhelming, it allows for great opportunities to teach. Kristi Mraz, Alison Porcelli, and Cheryl Tyler want to show you how.

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."
