Ask any kid what they like about school. Chances are pretty good, they'll say..... RECESS! Aside from the fun of playing with friends, this period of the day can actually be fairly educational.
Many important learning opportunities take place during free time at school. It's here that we learn how to get along with others in social situations. Its here we realize the importance of playing by the rules and figure out how to deal with bullies. Patience, compromise, and the art of social networking are all skills developed on the playground.
Share a few memorable experiences from this time in your school days. Funny stories, sad stories, embarrassing stories, are all tales to be told. Write about games played, friendships developed, injuries suffered, the time you got in trouble, etc.
Finally, write about the games you've played during free play time at school. Explain the rules of each game, what you liked and didn't like about them. Talk about the playground champs, who ruled the roost and what made them so good.
We all have fun memories of our school days. It's important to record them before they fade away.
May we prompt you?
