Sample text

School, in fact, was serious business, beginning as it did for many of us in first grade, but the three R’s were not expected to interfere with opportunities to play. There were morning and afternoon recess periods, and we all walked home for lunch. If we ate quickly, we had time to play again. After school we played until we were called in for supper. Even those of us who attended religious school several afternoons a week came home in time for play. “Ma, I’m playing something! ” could be heard from the courtyards of our buildings.

This year we’ve included more ‘special needs’ kids in our room. These kids really have to play. They can’t go  53  from task to task like we sometimes do with the others, so their teacher would take them out for what she calls play therapy. All of a sudden this seemed crazy to me. Everyone needed play therapy. ” The audience broke into applause, encouraging the speaker to continue. “Let me tell you, the kids are nicer to each other.
