Kindergarten-2nd Grade Just Play with Anne Lilly, Lower School Physical Education Teacher, $575

The heart and soul of childhood is play. “Just Play” is a joyful hour of group play for K-2 grade students based on what it is like when neighborhood children gather casually to play in a backyard after school. Children will be taught sports skills, classic group games that build social connections, and will be given options to play imaginatively or quietly in smaller groups. In addition, they will be given ownership over a democratic group decision-making process, where they select activities for each class from a growing list of options.
