Default What We Can Do to Advocate for Play and Against Pushed Down Academics...

In previous posts, we've discussed how academics should be presented in order to prepare children for kindergarten entry exams and how to reconcile that with what we know: that these exams are not developmentally appropriate for young children.
If we aren't teaching early academics, how can the children get this information without us feeding it to them? What will happen when they get to kindergarten without it?
Some have asked what we can do to advocate for children's right to childhood and play.
I want to share some great resources that I have found.Honestly all of these have a lot of really worthy information. Please read if you are the least intrested...

And this is an interesting (though a bit long) read that talks about more adult facilitation and guiding learning academics into the children's play:
