First of all I would like to applogise for any mistake in context, grammar or syntax. English is not my first language.
Do any of you use playing as learning tool in your classes? And by play I mean things like the games we used to play as children. If not, why not? I, myself, use the games of catch and the variant of it, chain tag (that's google's translation of it). I find it a great way as a warm-up excercise and it teaches us how to escape from one or more enemies. Also it's just great fun to let go of all of the normal ways we're taught to behave as an adult and be a kid of just a few minutes again.
I would love to hear if you do anything like this and what your experience have been so far.
