Goal 7: Play and have fun! invites us to observe children at play and think about how we can incorporate more fun and less paper in our lessons. My initial idea was to record something with my 4 year-old son talking about play and his favourite games. Alas, I couldn't get him to stay within range of the mic for long enough and telling him to sit down and stay still would have been against the spirit of the challenge!
So, you'll have to make do with just me. I thought I'd play around with something different this time so my response comes to you as a voice recording done via Vocaroo:
And one thing I forgot to add: as Shelly mentions, adding more fun can mean using less paper. This is of course a good thing but teachers often worry about running out of ideas. However, we should not forget another way to save paper: recycle. Don't be afraid of doing activities again. It doesn't have to be exactly the same lesson, just the same activity for a different topic. Our kids will often enjoy it more the second time around!
