On my organic milk carton, there is a bit of marketing that says, "We allow cows their bliss: Green Pasture."

I think of this every day when we launch into our long-awaited free choice time in my classroom. The children are so happy. Finally, after our circle time, our literacy rotations, our specials, our lunch, recess, and rest, I allow them what they've been waiting for. Play is a child's bliss.
