Playful Learning Spaces eCourse Giveaway!

Playful Learning, the book

Playful Learning: Develop Your Child’s Sense of Joy and Wonder
by Mariah Bruehl
As both a mom and a teacher I am always looking for resources to read to positively impact both my parenting and my teaching practices.  I am participating in a book study for Playful Learning: Develop Your Child's Sense of Joy and Wonder.  While my focus on Chapter 7: Raising the Citizens of Tomorrow is not until August 8-11, the book study is kicking off with an e-Course: Playful Learning Spaces.  I am giving away a free ticket to the eCourse as a guest blogger.  Don't be deceived by the "ages 4-8" focus, you will be able to apply ideas and mini-lessons into your 6th grade classroom, and as a parent of preschool and elementary-age kiddos, this resource is full of applicable tidbits.

Here is a summary of the book from her website:
Children are natural scientists, artists, mathematicians, authors, and scholars. From the time they are born they seek out information about the world around them in an effort to construct meaning and further their development. Children have an inherent drive to make sense of their reality, and when given an enriching environment and supportive guidance they intuitively take advantage of the prospects for learning that are before them. Parents have a unique opportunity to harness their children’s curiosity and channel it into the development of habits of heart and mind that will serve them throughout their lifetime.

Playful Learning is the magic that takes place when we meld a child’s sense of joy and wonder with thoughtfully planned learning experiences. Through easy-to-implement, hands-on projects you can engage your child in fun and creative ways that encourage learning and impart the joy of discovery. In addition, discover ways to create a space conducive to learning and learn how to build a culture within your family that celebrates learning. With a little bit of information and forethought, you can play a pivotal role in the cognitive and creative development of your child.
