Free Webinar – The Value of Recess
Contrary to the belief by many administrators have that recess takes away instruction time from students; recess can in fact help raise test scores. We will discuss that recess is a contributing factor for cultural exchange, the opportunity for solitary play can serve as an outlet for reducing or lowering the child’s anxiety, and gives the classroom teacher an opportunity to assess the child’s peer social skills.
Join us to learn the effects of eliminating recess on students and teachers physical and mental health, and how to facilitate children’s play during recess by the combination of setting, challenge, and opportunity, which facilitates fully engaged exploration of the environment during independent, self-directed time.
Check back next month.
