In Colorado we have a LOT of cold and/or snowy days, which means no recess. In our Elementary schools the only recess is after lunch, so when the kids are stuck inside all day it is really hard on them. (My class has gym and other specials at the very end of the school day.
On these days we have movement games and actual stretching and relaxation techniques. The students love it, become good enough to lead the activities, and request them if I forget!
I love that you have those games for your students. I've been told that Yoga for students is very helpful and it seems like you are doing just that - getting them relaxed while moving around! Thanks for the comment!
