Ruth, I am so glad you brought up creative play in your #5 comment. I think that includes time not just during recess or lunch, but also during art classes - drama, music, etc. It encourages right brain thinking and often has them up out of their seats interacting each other.
I actually found this post because I read an article comparing Reynolds' article to arts education (newvictorytheater.blogspot.com) and wanted to see what the rest of the chatter has been. Thanks for the conversation!
