What Do You Talk About With Different Kinds Of Play?

Purposeful Play_SM_MG5D3801

In Purposeful Play, Kristi Mraz, Alison Porcelli, and Cheryl Tyler list the different types of play and the most productive conversation that can come from each. When students are playing outside—what Cheryl calls "rough and tumble play" in today's video—the conversation becomes one about empathy, negotiation, and problem-solving. In games with rules, kids learn and talk about self-control, self-regulation, and what it means to win or lose.

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."
