Work as Play

Sam's teacher Mrs. Wagler sent home a paper talking about
what our kids are doing in each subject and just how they are learning from that.
I loved seeing how each subject, break, lunch, and recess in school contributes to their learning.
It is titled..
What is my child learning in First Grade?
and it ends with this...
When you ask me what I've done at school today, and I say that "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 my play.
