During our recess time at JFK, students are given several opportunities to use a variety of exercise equipment. Our students' favorite choice is participating in a friendly game of soccer where the competition is so entertaining that it blows our mind how skilled these young students are at this level. The second personal choice is a tie between jump roping and hula hoops because students like to battle each other on who is king or queen of each activity. One of these battles lasted about 7 minutes straight. Students were so excited for their classmates that they sounded like an audience at a semipro football game. It felt great to have students this enthusiastic during recess.
