Boy was I excited when I discovered this post on twitter this morning. Educators have long understood the importance of movement as not only a reward but essential to the overall growth and development of all students. I know there are lots of people out there who believe a teacher’s first inclination is to subtract time from recess or for administrators to shorten PE in an academic schedule but I am here to tell you that neither is true. I have never worked with a teacher who did not cringe at the thought of a student missing any amount of recess nor have I ever approved cutting physical education in the academic curriculum. The ability to move and play during recess and PE is essential for the cognitive and social well-being of children, and I am happy to share one bloggers perspective on this important topic. Enjoy! tlb
