“Bring Back Recess!” Thursday January 26, 2017

My kids need recess. And more than just the 10 minutes they get at lunch recess. They need a good 15–20 minute break every 2 hours. And an indoor recess doesn’t cut it if it’s in the classroom. Then need a place where they can run and scream and let off their child-steam.

I think my kids are crazy all day because they don’t have enough time in the day to really cut loose. They’re kids! They want to play and socialize. My school is so focused on academics, they’ve forgotten about basic human development.

Seriously, there is a block of time without a special where my students are in academic groups for 3 hours and 15 minutes. No breaks. It’s bullshit. No wonder my kids are fat assholes.
