|PS- This gesture is tapping our index finger to our temple three times.|
I partnered up the kids and we went outside to hang out in the different areas of our playground. We focused on our four main parts of the playground: the swings, play structures, field, and four square. Partners walked around to each area and jotted down 3-5 bullet points about what smart choices looked like in these areas.
I then had them work on the back side of the page and brainstorm what smart choices looked like when it came to behavior with friends, other grade levels, and what we should do when the bell rings to come inside. The last square was their best parting advice about what to "always remember" when it came to recess choices.
Some of the great "Always Remember..." responses included:
- Be kind
- Treat others the way you want to be treated
- Don't cheat
- Say nice things
- Don't whine (lol!)
- Be safe
- Follow the rules
- To have fun and just be kind to one another
I have posted this for FREE on Google Docs HERE. Since I know that your playground probably has different areas, I left the last page blank so you can add in four sections of your choosing.
