On Wednesday February 1st, classrooms at Windsor will be participating in Global School Play Day! Countries and schools from all over the world come together on this one day to celebrate the necessity of unstructured play in our students’ lives at school. Research shows that unstructured play has a positive influence on:
- physical and mental health
- language development
- problem solving
- risk management
- independent learning skills
- academic skills
- classroom behavior
- healthy emotional attitudes
- better adjustment to school life
On this day some of the teachers may be asking students to bring in toys/games, no electronics please, to play. Check your teacher’s newsletter for more information.
Teachers will also be checking out toys from our Maker Space, some of the exciting games are; Legos, K’Nex, Lincoln Logs, and Strawbees.
