This workshop will present a story of how our 3-5 program struggled with how to handle weapon play, and the evolution of our policies and principles around this type of play. It details the process we took, and our use of reflective practice in handling this complex issue. Pedagogical documentation on the weapon-play in our program and educator reflections will be included in the presentation.
• To appreciate what reflective practice looks like, and how it can benefit your program.
• To explore how and why our program went from a zero-tolerance approach to a more open approach to weapon play and what that evolution looked like.
• To engage in reflection and discussion on the motivations, benefits and concerns around weapon play and how our program is currently engaging with weapon play.
