Monday’s Star Tribune had a good article about the importance of physical activity during the school day. “Schools find active kids make smarter students” by HERÓN MÁRQUEZ ESTRADA , Star Tribune “Local results echo a growing body of research showing a connection between physical activity and academic performance.”
Many schools feel pressure to use every minute of the school day to teach “academic” subjects, and so recess hits the chopping block, along with arts and other essentials. At FSMN, we have recess for every student, every day. Why?
My office is located in the heart of the kindergarten hall cubbies. I love it when they poke their heads in and say howdy.
