You may be wondering how you're going to fit some quality hopscotch time into your busy schedule. Well wonder no more! Thanks to the handy Girl Calendar, I can keep you up to date on all the plans for any given day of recess.
The other day during a rainy indoor recess, I happened upon Keisha and Deja crafting a daily agenda of playground activities.
According to their Girl Calendar, Mondays will feature games of tag and Zip, Zap, Zoom as well as a dance competition. If you're more of a Dancing with the Stars kind of gal, then be sure to show up Tuesdays after Zookeeper's Keys.
Tuesday also includes an item listed simply as, "Girls are better than boys." I'm not entirely certain how this constitutes a recess activity rather than just a firmly-held conviction. Do they spend that time reveling in how much better girls are than boys? Do they stage tests of skill and cunning designed to prove their superiority over the male members of the class?
Under Wednesday is listed, "Work! Work! WORK!" At first, I was impressed by the girls' dedication to learning, as shown by voluntarily opting to do work during recess. Then I realized that we don't have recess on Wednesdays.
Which brings us to Thursday, which will apparently be taken up by "Spying on kids" and "Asking kids about their personal life." Will there be a survey?
Round out the week with some hopscotch (See? I told you this calendar would help you fit it in!), a little tag, and playing house, and you've got yourself a week!
