A must watch for all educators and families, here are
*Play is how children make meaning of the experience.
*Let joy be joy (ironically I wrote about this yesterday before even watching this video).
*A thoughtful teacher understands and respects arrive in the classroom with deep attachments - children at play see what they do as a real contribution for others.
*Genuine meaningful effort (by the child) is met with deep respect (by the teacher).
*Burst through the barriers of cute, the ABCs and 123s and speak to the meaningful experience.
