Just try to have as many options for the students at recess. Even if they are walking around while talking with their buddies. Trying to get the sitting around at recess out of their minds. Football and soccer are the most popular with the older students (grades 3-5) while tag games, jump ropes and playing on the playground equipment are more popular with the primary (K-2) students. With some of the money received for the Fuel Up to Play 60 program, I have replaced some traditional playground equipment and also offered some new ideas!

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

Talk with the recess clerks about keeping students moving! Giving them some equipment and a cart to store it in! I will also go visit on a regular basis and monitor and join in the recess activities!
