Establishing rules and procedures is essential during those first few weeks of school, and one area you might not think to review is the playground. Playground/Recess time can be a blast for students and a somewhat “relaxing” time for teachers, but that is only if students know and obey playground rules. If not, recess can turn into an accident-prone time!
To avoid this, I’ve created an emerging reader and fluency sheet you can read and review with your students. It is also a great idea to send a copy home for homework. Students can read and discuss the rules with their parents, and it also gives parents a great idea of the type of behavior you expect to see on the playground. Enjoy!
