Wordless Wednesday - Indoor Recess

I'm back with another Wordless Wednesday hosted by the fab Miss DeCarbo at Sugar and Spice!

My students basically get "free time" when the weather's bad and we have to do indoor recess? This is actually the first school I've taught at that actually even HAS recess! 

What are your students allowed to do when you're stuck inside during recess? I'd love for you to share in the comments!



  1. I'm all for free time too. Thankfully my kids are responsible enough that I don't have to supervise them during a wet lunch time either and still get my break! My classroom is right next to the staff room though so I have it lucky!!

  2. I LOVE indoor recess, except when that's all we have for days at a time when the weather isn't cooperating! We rotate between activities (lego, blocks, games, puzzles, computers, art, etc.) and watching a movie! I didn't realize that this was the first time you were allowed to have recess- CRAZY!
    Sure miss you girls!! Come visit soon please!!!!

  3. Recess isn't mandatory at my school either. However, I make a point to get my firsties out 99% of the time because it's what 6/7 year olds should do. Period. We live in Florida, so it's HOT HOT HOT. 10-15 minutes of recess is all that our schedule (and our body!) allows for. It is oh, so hot. But occasionally, it rains. So we play some Koo Koo Kangaroo and dance around or pick an activity on GoNoodle when we are stuck inside.


  4. At our school, when we have indoor recess, the kids get out games, maker boards, etc...to play with or sometimes they watch a movie.

  5. My kiddos get free time, but they have to choose a toy or game from a shelf I have full of them!
