Lots of variety
One thing I mentioned to some staff today was my belief that eating lunch should be the LAST part of the lunch hour. I had this schedule for my years here before and I know it changed back to the norm after I left for my district position. If you look at some of the research it supports children going out to play after being in class working and then coming in to eat prior to the afternoon classes. Some of you may wish to look into that. Some research shows improvements in playground behaviours that go along with the health benefits of setting the schedule to learn, play (recess), learn, play (lunch), eat, learn...
I am away at a district Health and Safety meeting on Monday and Mr. Williams will be in charge for the day.
Have a great weekend!
