Our variable Watsonville weather means my students miss out on opportunities to run and play outside. My Kindergarten students have asked for a variety of indoor recess choices - Legos, Magna Tiles, Interlox and board games. From designing tall towers to actively communicating, these kid-requested resources will ensure our bodies and minds are active and having fun throughout the entire year, not just on outdoor recess days. Keeping all of these items stored in bins will offer my Kindergarteners an easily accessible choice during indoor recess. Rather than playing DreamBox on an iPad or watching Magic School Bus, my Kindergarteners asked for more engaging, imaginative and active choices during this time. My Kindergarteners want and need to be active during their indoor time recess - playing board boards, building towers out of Legos, engineering a magnetic bridge out of Magna Tiles. As a teacher, this project is a win-win because students are active, they are engaged, and they are building social skills with their classmates! Through an active indoor recess, my students will burn some their pent-up energy. Additionally, these indoor recess activities foster skills such as motor skills, coordination, colors, numbers, cooperation, deductive reasoning, concentration, strategic thinking, and the importance of staying active. All of these are important life-long skills.
