Hello, I’m Ashley Pence, your new recess coordinator. You may have spotted me outside setting up games and playing with the students. My goals for recess are to have a fun and safe environment with a variety of options for our students at all age levels. I will be introducing weekly games! There will be a link below to show your students in class the right way to play before recess.
Weekly Game: Switch (Four Square Courts)
How to Play. Five players at a time. Each player occupies a corner or the middle. Play begins when the person in the middle says “Switch”. All players must find a new corner/cone to occupy.
The goal of this game is to start to develop active listening skills and to have fun! Also please remind students to use rock-paper-scissors if they arrive at the corner at the same time. If you have any suggestions or questions, feel free to email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
