As a child, do you remember saying, “Let’s go play math” or “Let’s go play science” or “Let’s go play English”.

No.  I never said it.  And, I have not heard this generation of students saying it either.

I do hear kids today saying, “Let’s go play basketball” or “Let’s go play Legos” or “Let’s go play on the iPad” or “Let’s go play building a city” or “Let’s go play in the backyard” or just “Let’s go play”.

Life is not all play, but there is something to be said about the engagement, interest level, motivation, creative thinking, learning that goes on when play is involved.

So, let’s go play…
