The Value of Unstructured Play Time for Kids

Let's remember the importance of unstructured play time for our children, all summer long. 

A great quote: 

"Free play allows children to develop the flexibility needed to adapt to changing circumstances and environments—an ability that comes in very handy when life becomes unpredictable as an adult."

The Third Metric

Arianna Huffington of The Huffington Post has been promoting her book, Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder with recent blog posts and radio interviews.

In this related article, Waldorf math teacher Lisa Babinet  highlights the importance of not only preparing students academically but also "preparing the students for a life of well-being, wisdom, wonder, and giving". This is the gift of Waldorf® Education.

Screen-Free Week: May 5-11

The amazing Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood (whose founder, Dr. Susan Linn, spoke at Green Meadow last week), started Screen-Free Week in 1994, as "TV-Free America".

We are celebrating Screen-Free Week by staying off Facebook, Twitter, and our blog, and interacting with screens only as needed for work. Visit the Screen-Free Week website or read this article for inspiration.

See you on May 12!
