Do you have recess in your school?  How do you feel it benefits children?  What do we know about movement and the connection to cognitive learning.We know how important it is! At our school we are taking time to research what recess looks like: how children play together, what they are learning as they play, ways we can support them with materials, and how the environment acts as a third teacher.  We have given our selves a year to gather information and document to make the learning visible.  It’s a research that has great implications for our work.

What do you think?
