"A child's need to be outside is not just a thrill, it's a physical and emotional need. We have just forgotten it. " -Linda Buzzell 🌻Respect for the Individual (Sunflower pillar) ‪#RememberPlay‬ ✭ ‪#SharedWisdom‬ Join The Sunflower Circle: http://qoo.ly/srtmm

"Where is the book in which the teacher can read about what teaching is? The children themselves are this book. We should not learn to teach out of any book other than the one lying open before us and consisting of the children themselves." -Rudolf Steiner 🌻Respect for the Individual (Sunflower pillar) ‪#RememberPlay‬ ✭ ‪#SharedWisdom‬ Join The Sunflower Circle: http://qoo.ly/sr3cv

"Studies tell us that play has a long term impact on a child's cognitive development. You know what doesn't have a long -term impact on a child's cognitive development? Homework." -Zoë Kim 🌻Learning Through Experience (Sunflower pillar) ‪#RememberPlay‬ ✭ ‪#SharedWisdom‬ Join The Sunflower Circle: http://qoo.ly/sqb8g

"Ironically, minimizing or eliminating recess may be counterproductive to academic achievement, as a growing body of evidence suggests that recess promotes not only physical health and social development but also cognitive performance"

"As I see it, the aims of education are to enable students to understand the world around them and the talents within them so that they can become fulfilled individuals and active, compassionate citizens." -Sir Ken Robinson 🌻Respect for the Individual (Sunflower pillar) ‪#RememberPlay‬ ✭ ‪#SharedWisdom‬ Join The Sunflower Circle: http://qoo.ly/sppdn

"One of the most powerful truths we can offer our children is the knowledge that we're all still learning. None of us have arrived; we all have room to grow. This frees our children from expecting perfection of themselves- or anyone else- because they know that life is a journey, from day one on." -Erica Layne 🌻Respect for the Individual (Sunflower pillar) ‪#RememberPlay‬ ✭ ‪#SharedWisdom‬ Join The Sunflower Circle: http://qoo.ly/sp6na

"If your objective is to get people to obey an order, to show up on time and do what they’re told, then bribing or threatening them may be sensible strategies. But if your objective is to get long-term quality in the workplace, to help students become careful thinkers and self-directed learners, or to support children in developing good values, then rewards, like punishments, are absolutely useless. In fact, as we are beginning to see, they are worse than useless—they are actually counterproductive.” -Alfie Kohn 🌻Respect for the Individual (Sunflower pillar) ‪#RememberPlay‬ ✭ ‪#SharedWisdom‬ Join The Sunflower Circle: http://qoo.ly/sndrt

"When you teach a child something, you take away forever his chance of discovering it for himself." -Jean Piaget 🌻Learning Through Experience (Sunflower pillar) ‪#RememberPlay‬ ✭ ‪#SharedWisdom‬ Join The Sunflower Circle: http://qoo.ly/smmpj

“Traditional education is all about adults testing children, dictating what, when, and how they should learn, and that’s why so many kids find school boring. A play-based education is one in which children educate themselves by asking and answering their own questions. This is how human beings are designed to learn.” -Tom Hobson 🌻Learning Through Experience (Sunflower pillar) ‪#RememberPlay‬ ✭ ‪#SharedWisdom‬ Join The Sunflower Circle: http://qoo.ly/skuvh
