Dr. Recess encourages all students to play

In February we had Dr. Curt Hinson come to Vickery to teach the students new, fun, inclusive games that they can easily play at recess. Then, after the morning assemblies, he came to each grade level recess with all the equipment set up for students to use, etc. The kids love the new games and they are gettting lots of great physical activity at recess and including more friends in the process.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

I created bags with all the equipment needed to play the games, and students are being responsible to get them and bring them back in when they are finished. I am also reinforcing the games in my own PE classes and using the resources Dr. Recess gave us to encourage the teachers to get their students moving and playing at recess.
