Managing Outdoor Play in the Mainstream School Setting
“Thanks for today. I gained some real insights into constructivism, choosing my language when responding to play, as well as some gems regarding planning invitations and writing learning stories. Have been thinking about some rituals I might begin and am interested in future play training! It was just wonderful to be part of this group and look forward to more adventures as an advanced practitioner in play”
