RECLAIM A PLAYFUL AND JOYFUL SPIRIT


Too often play is set in direct opposition to work, when in reality, play is the engine of learning for children. This session will help teachers reclaim a playful and joyful spirit by teaching the myriad of ways play can be used to facilitate social emotional and academic growth.

This session will outline the ways play can be infused within a day, as well as the instructional strategies teachers can utilize to support children’s learning at this valuable time.

Teachers will learn how strategies like focused lessons, conferring, small group play, and whole class conversations can build literacy skills, STEM skills, and critical social emotional skills. Charts and tools will be shared alongside lessons that can be used in classrooms.

Teachers will see demonstrations and photographs of how a playful spirit can extend to any teaching by utilizing student interests, props, videos, and joy.

Kristine Mraz is co-author (with Alison Porceli and Cheryl Tyler) of Purposeful Play, the book that helps you make play a powerful part of your teaching. Her previous title A Mindset for Learning, co-authored with Christine Hertz, provides practical and powerful strategies for cultivating optimism, flexibility, and empathy alongside traditional academic skills. She is also co-author with Marjorie Martinelli of Smarter Charts and Smarter Charts for Math, Science, and Social Studies. Their popular blog chartchums keeps teachers in touch with ongoing and relevant classroom issues and ways to use charts as a support.

Chartchums is also on Facebook and on Twitter @chartchums!

Kristi teaches Kindergarten in the New York City Public schools. In addition to writing and teaching, she consults in schools across the country and as far away as Taiwan. She primarily supports teachers in early literacy, play, and inquiry based learning. On the off chance she has free time, you’ll find Kristi reading on a couch in Brooklyn with her dog and her husband.

You can follow all of her adventures on twitter @MrazKristine or on her blog: kinderconfidential.wordpress.com.
