Hey y'all! Casey here, from The Original Math Maniac.
Not all of us are blessed with the often frustrating season we call WINTER. However, here in NC, Elsa has paid us several visits and brought forth an unusual amount of ice and snow. This means an increase in cabin fever and, yes, the dreaded INDOOR RECESS.
When the weather is rotten and my students are forced to stay inside, I often pull out the same ol' bag of tricks. However, after so many days of being trapped in our homes and with each other in our classroom, ordinarily peaceful students are starting to look more like Komodo Dragons.
With that in mind, I searched Pinterest high and low for some new ideas to change up Indoor Recess. Please visit my Pinterest page to check out these fun ideas. I will be continously adding to this board to avoid stagnation.
Also, I whipped this fun little Charades dice game. You can download it for FREE from Google Docs by clicking HERE. Instructions are included and I guarantee at LEAST 30 minutes of indoor fun. :)
I am ALWAYS looking for new ways to entertain my little green beans during indoor recess, please help a fellow teacher and leave your suggestions in the comments!
