Well my class is giving me many ideas for topics. As soon as I get time, I have a ton of them!!! LOL - sorry.

My professor is a second grade teacher. She said in her school district recess is not allowed to be more than 15 minutes. They may not stretch that at all. The districts philosophy is more than that and that's when bad things happen on the playground like fights and such. Our school is 30 minutes recess and sometimes we stretch it out a little and have the kids walk before returning to class. We don't have any problems with fights.

Do your school kids get recess and if so, how much time do they get? Seems like by the time they get outside the 15 minutes would be up.

I think that's the REASON for fights ... kids have too much energy. They get antsy, start mouthing off, and then get in a fight. Punish the trouble-makers, not the group.

Their recess is 20 minutes long, and that's plenty of time in this heat. I'm there often, and the kids are usually more than ready to come in by that point.

They often go outside for snacks, P.E. science lessons, doing math on the sidewalk with chalk, etc., too, though.

20 minutes for Mia as well. It seems like it's plenty of time. What seems to happen is that the teacher makes sure they are ready to go out before the bell rings so they get the full 20 minutes.
