Recess Fun

Physical Activity Participation

This year I had a group of students that loved recess and encouraged all the other students to be active, even when they saw them sitting on the benches. We had a "buddy bench" and students would sit there when they didn't have anyone to play with; students would go play with those students when they saw them sitting there alone! I also had students that made a group walking club at recess and walked around the sidewalk every day at recess before they would play anything else. I had one student reach 31,000 points just from doing healthy snacks and treats at home and incorporating physical activity into her daily routine.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students in my classroom worked great together with coming up with ideas to do for more physical activity in their days!
