My students love to learn. They need to learn who they are and where they belong in the world. That is what they do every day in first grade. They learn to read and write and excel at math. They also learn who they are and who they want to be every day.
My first grade students are amazing and should be celebrated.
Allowing them to make their own choices and determine how to best learn improves their self awareness and interpersonal abilities.
Our students have 20 minutes of recess each day. Since our school is under construction, there are limited options for areas to play. The bowling sets, basketballs, and soccer balls will allow students to build their interpersonal and sportsmanship skills. Students will be able to choose their recess activity and improve their positive interactions.
Free play allows students to improve their imagination, work out problems, and learn life skills.
The ability to interact with others in a positive and cohesive manner is imperative. Play allows students to work together to learn these skills. Play also enable students to take a much fun time during their busy days.
