Aistear is based around learning through play. Children not only have the need for play, but they also have the right to play ‘States Parties recognize the right of the child to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child’ (United Nations Convention on the Rights of a Child, 2010). Play has many benefits to children.

To begin with, games keep all of the students involved and encourage them to focus on the use of language. The students do not worry about making mistakes and by using a game which provides them a lot of opportunities such as doing, acting and moving, the students obtain higher level of knowledge. Therefore, they learn unintentionally and start using the language in a natural manner in the classroom (Schutz, 1988. as cited in Mubaslat, 2012). Zdybiewska (1994) also supports that games are good tools to learn a language due to their being a model of real life ( as cited in Muhanna, 2012). According to Celce-Murcia (1979), games let the students to be in real life situations so they have a chance to learn the language in a natural way (as cited in Yolageldili, & Arikan, 2011).
Active Learning has a profound impact on student’s learning. It gives students’ an opportunity to thinking critically and work independently. Every part of active learning encourages students to share ideas, act on them, and share the results of their work with others, which inspires everyone in learning. The following are some of the benefits of active learning method found by Gifkin (2015), Kim, Sharma, Land and Furlong (2013), and Braniff (2011), Abbas, Goldsby and Gilmer (2007). 2.4.1 Enhance Students’ Learning Outcome Active learning enhance Students’ Performance, as it actively engages the students’ in the task, leading to better performance in subsequent classes.

Ultimately we are trying to motivate children so they remain engaged, focused and on task so they complete activities and achieve the desired learning outcome. Young people and children are
Thus, the more motivated they are, the more learning process occurs effectively. In this way, positive reinforcement may help us balance our young children’s motivation. As I consider, reinforcement is somehow behaviorist approach but if we become an effective observer, we could know exactly when and how much we reinforce our students. For me, that helps to reduce affective filter in the classroom environment and create an effective learning process among children. For instance, we can create an effective atmosphere by using games and songs.
By using games, children imagination and creativity are enhanced as they get the opportunity to interact with the world that surrounds them and have they possibility to realize what the objects are really like, and how they feel. Additionally, Rixon (1997) claims that through playing games, children can review, and remember vocabulary in an enjoyable way. And same as Pound (2005), Rixon alleges that games are useful strategies that can strengthen children's motivation; yet teacher should take the time in finding and creating games that are suitable for their students to help them learn while playing. Similarly.
