Get Active at Recess

With the help of the new equipment for the playground, students have started to play football. We reviewed a few safety and game rules and students have started to play pickup two hand touch games during recess.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We demonstrated during PE and loaded up the recess equipment bins with footballs and other equipment. The first few days I went out with them to get students engaged and to get games started.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are playing football on three different fields during recess. Football was not a very popular sport at our school as early as this summer. Today students are expanding their recess activities and playing sports they didn’t before.
