The other day at the end of a summer camp day, staff were asked a question by a parent. "What goes on all day? When I ask my child what they are doing they tell me they just played."
After they thanked the parent for the compliment, they explained that the students are using educational games throughout the day. Students start with thirty minutes of activity time. Then 45 minutes of taekwondo, then snack then back to activity until the end of the day at 12:30. The activities are so much fun the students don't even realize they are learning the entire day.
The question also reminded staff of this quote:
When you ask me what I've done at school today, and I say, "I Just played." Please don't misunderstand me. For, you see, I'm learning as I play.
I'm learning to enjoy and be successful in my work. I'm preparing for tomorrow. Today, I am a child and my work is play. By Anita Wadley
So thank you for the compliment because we are having so much fun at work!
