We brought back playing in our school, something junior high students forget as they get older. During lunch times, we brought out hula hoops, bouncers, and rope for tug-o-war. We would have dance offs before school. It was time to just have fun and laugh.
How did students and adults work together as a team?
We let the student come up with the activity's for the week/day, and then we as adults played the supportive role in helping the students carry out the game plan. Students ran the program and got other students involved, and we the adults gathered the needed items and were the loudest cheerleaders.
