Maine’s Positive Story of the Day ~ Kate Furbish Elementary School in Brunswick ~
On Wednesday, February 1st, Kate Furbish School participated in Global School Play Day. Recognizing that play is essential to our students’ academic learning and social development, students engaged in indoor and outdoor play opportunities throughout the day. Research shows that play is learning and learning through play is essential to a child’s growth. Play allows a child to learn the skills of negotiation, problem solving, decision making, sharing and working within groups. During play, students learn through experience, increasing student engagement and creativity. Play is the means through which children make sense of their world, test boundaries, innovate, explore, and learn collaboration.
