Remember when school used to have playtime? It was a time where you worked on puzzles or games and learned how to interact appropriately with your peers. It was a time when all of your hard (academic) work for the week was celebrated and rewarded. It was a time when you felt successful just being a kid. I have decided to bring back play in my first grade classroom. I teach in an inclusion setting in a low-income school. Many of my students are not intrinsically motivated to learn reading or math because of specific learning disabilities. Meanwhile, most of my students need help with their social skills and ability to work (or play) cooperatively. I want to reward my students hard work, and open up natural space for social skills instruction, by setting aside a time each Friday dedicated to games and crafts. This is where you come in. I need a variety of games, materials, and puzzles so that a class of 26 students can enjoy "fun Friday" activities.
