A Student Writes On How Important Playing Is To The Learning Process

In today's world, many teachers and parents do not seem to understand that students really need to play.
They get upset when their child takes a time off from school work or even cracks a joke in class. Such people simply believe that education deserves every sort of seriousness and with no play attached to it. But is this right? Let's find out

A number of students that I talked to while writing on this topic confirmed that they enjoy lectures when their is a sense of humor attached to it. In other words, when a teacher is too serious with transferring knowledge that he fails to take note of the students need to smile when the lesson is going on, the students could become dull or even sleep while in class.

Playing while teaching is simply the teachers way of grabbing the exclusive attention of the students.
Students are likely to remember accurately the lessons attached to a joke therefore teachers are encouraged to find a way to incorporate humor while classes are on going.

When school is fun and interactive students will always have a reason to be in school.

All works and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Every student obviously needs a time off to engage in meaningful play. Just like workers go on holidays or leave students must be given some time to cool off or face the rule of diminishing returns.

This period should be a time where the child doesn't have to worry about school work but focuses more on refreshing his mind and body for the next school session.

Reasonable play is just as vital to education as wheels are to a car.
