The Four Letter Word
Cover the controversy of play and how play is taboo to say in the educational elementary world, however, schools still play and is accepted. Its just called tinkering, making, STEM teaching. I use Tinker tubs in my current classes, STEM teaching approaches, teach the difference between tinkering and making. Although “Play” is considered irrelevant today, we still do it. Inservice teachers and preservice teachers are taught to developmentally meet the needs of the students through these new terms rather than that of the old. Also add coding, KIBO Robots, and…any other 21st-century type play.
