Fun in School
As educators, we are constantly juggling multiple things. Academics, social skills and behavior are some of my top priorities. I strongly believe in helping my students in these areas, and I work hard every day to do so. However, I’ve always believed there has to be an element of fun. Otherwise, why would they want to do it?! We live in an achievement based world, where we’re always striving for more and more. I don’t necessarily think that’s a bad thing. Drive and ambition are great traits and necessary for success. I just think we can sprinkle some fun into that mix! We take time at The Innovation School to play. In fact, it’s one of our core values (projects, passions, peers, and play). Winter provides a great opportunity for fun. We go sledding, cross country skiing, and downhill skiing. We cozy up afterwards and drink hot chocolate. Not only is this good old fashioned fun, but it also allows for authentic opportunities for teamwork, exercise, problem solving, bravery, and many more life skills. Let them be kids, let them have fun!
