Why does Peter Gray feel that children need more experience playing games without adult interference? (Remember: All answers need follow-up sentences! Your answer is always better by the 2nd and 3rd sentences!)
How did you improve your creativity, improvisation, teamwork, and initiative skills today? If you don't know what some of these skills are, please ask me!
Why should other teachers do Global School Play Day in their classrooms?
Peter Grey felt that kids were forgetting how they used to play. Kids used to play without their parents interferring or creating the rules. Kids used to plan how they play, make up hand games, make up rules for their own games, and use pieces and other things from different games and creating their own game. Peter feels that Global School Play Day should help remind kids how to make up their own fun games without needing the guidance of a parent.
I am very good with my creativity skills and couldn't wait to test them out! My partner(s) and I started to poke around the games until we found one that looked enjoyable. Immediately, I started to see ways we could play and ended up improving my improvisational skills.
Many kids would miss the reminder of Global School Play Day and keep following rules and playing video games. It is important that we get this reminder because Global School Play Day is only celebrated once a year and kids will forget how they used to use their imagination to play.
