Indoor Recess Again!!

It is that time of year!  Snow, Ice, Wind Chills.  We have had indoor recess for three days in a row.  However, the students do not seem to mind.  They love it!  They are playing our Math Investigation games, giving surveys, and even working in their Writing Workshop books.  A favorite is to explore with our Math manipulatives.  Check out what was created today!
This student even told me she made hers symmetrical!  I love it!

This group wanted to use all the pattern blocks.  They had to stop when the bell rang.

We in Rochester Ny are trapped inside for recess most of the summer and we live for Friday's when we bundle up and head outside! I can only do outdoor recess once a week in the winter because it takes about 15 minutes on either end to get bundled up! Enjoy your inside recess and I hope that you all can get back outside soon!

OK...I have snow fever and wrote that we are trapped inside for most of the summer! I guess that I was having "summer wishful thinking!"

Stay warm!

I love the fact that your kids are not just playing games during recess...I like the idea of "educational/skill-based games" during recess.

Investigation Pattern Blocks, Connecting Cubes and Geoblocks are favorites in our classroom too. That iPod Touches. :)
