Off and Running to a New School Year!

With Labor Day over and past---we are now off and running into a new school year as well as a change of seasons!  We had a hail storm yesterday that was a surprise--and not a welcome one. It's now time to do the drill of getting the vehicles and house looked at and getting started on repairs.

A big part of the school day for kids is recess! I have created some playground safety resources that ask students use their critical thinking and decision making skills to stay safe and still have fun on the playground.  Find the activities at the KidZ Learning Connection Store at https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Kidz-Learning-Connections

Playground Safety Decision Cards
This activity provides students with practice in making decisions. The task cards present twelve different playground safety scenarios. Students are asked to view and/or read the cards and then decide if the situation describes a 'safe' or 'sorry' action. Students should provide reasons for their answers. The cards can be used in individual, small and/or large group activities. The cards can be used as a writing exercise. Students may role play the situations described on the cards
