Inviting students to explore the curriculum in their play
What do we mean by a play invitation?
“An invitation is something that gives an idea, urge or cause to do something. It is built to invite children into a specific exploration or experience. It is based on teacher wonderings and ponderings. An invitation is a verb. It sparks children’s interest. It provides children with new interests to pursue and engage in.
An invitation breathes new interests into the classroom.”
