Structured Recess

Matthew Knippenberg,   Gerald Sonntag Elementary School
Physical Activity Participation

My school has adopted a program called "Dr. Recess." This program teaches students and teachers many different games that can be played during recess. With structured recess, more kids are active and they are safer during play.

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

During the school year, new teachers will be taught the rules and how to play the different games. The games will be reviewed often for the students. The games are simple and do not involve a lot of equipment. Hopefully, the students will play these games at home as well.
