Physical Education and Group Play

We structure our day with plenty of unstructured play.  Kids learn best in bursts of instructional activity interspersed with time to “get their energy out.”   When a child starts flopping out of the desk, we know it is time “to set the dogs loose.”  Not for long periods, but long enough to get rid of the wiggles and then get on with the next bit of seat work.  And, of course, through structured games and skill development either inside the gym or out on the fields, we practice body movement, ball skills, cooperative games, while also letting the kids play fun group games.
