How should our kids play at recess?

How should our kids play at recess? | Psicología Escolar | Scoop.it
There’s no crouching under the play structure, no swinging jackets around one’s head, no playing with sticks and no hiding behind trees. On the opposite side of the island city, kids stuff themselves into car tires and squeal as they fly across the blacktop on the wheels of an old office chair. The two schools and their divergent paths are no accident, and they may be familiar to many parents. The schools exemplify a renewed focus on the meaning and mechanics of recess, which was often neglected as schools increasingly focused on high-stakes standardized testing. Research resoundingly supports the idea that kids learn best if they have a chance to let loose. [...] there are few official standards guiding recess in public schools, and that free time can look starkly different, depending on the decisions of administrators, who have a legal and professional obligation to keep kids safe. Not everyone agrees on the definition of safe, though, and recess can become a hot topic among parents, whose mix of fears and fond memories of their own childhoods stirs complex emotions. At Bay Farm, safety is a central element of play. Last week, on one of the year’s first sunny days, kindergartners and first graders sat on the blacktop in lines after eating lunch, the play structure enticingly empty behind two playground monitors wearing orange vests and holding whistles. “No running!” one monitor said to a group of students who took off. Some students headed for the slide, while others hung upside down from monkey bars. A few groups played with balls, others jumped rope. On the school’s third-grade playground, Brody Esquer wandered on the grass with a couple of friends. The kids want to run on wet grass, chase each other, play make-believe games, Esquer said. Brody and a group of friends, bored on the blacktop, created a ouija board-type game one afternoon, pretending to conjure spirits. Kids played dodgeball, Red Rover, Kill the Carrier and Crack the Whip, arguably unsafe games leading to shoulder dislocations, concussions and blows to the solar plexus. Growing societal worries about safety led to many risky games being banned, while playground equipment shifted from metal to plastic, the asphalt under the structures replaced by recycled rubber. [...] school districts grew more wary of being held liable for injuries on the playground or athletic fields. Under the No Child Left Behind test-score mandates, many schools started cutting minutes off recess — or skipping it altogether in favor of academics. [...] in recent years, researchers have pushed for play and recess to make a comeback, with wide agreement that free time is not just about fun but critical to a child’s development. “It affords a time to rest, play, imagine, think, move, and socialize,” the American Association of Pediatrics wrote in 2013, in a first-of-its-kind policy statement titled The Crucial Role of Recess in School. “Optimal cognitive processing in a child necessitates a period of interruption after a period of concentrated instruction.” Most experts suggest setting aside areas for specific activities, providing a range of equipment, teaching game rules and modeling conflict resolution. Playworks, a national nonprofit promoting play in 1,000 schools nationwide, has brought back tag and dodgeball to school playgrounds, teaching the rules, using softer balls and showing kids how to tag with “butterfly fingers” to the shoulders and back. “The kids want to play so much that they will take in the expectations of how to play safe and kind,” said Elizabeth Cushing, president of the Oakland organization. According to federal figures, about 4 million children are injured at school each year, although the vast majority suffer minor cuts and bruises. Across Alameda at Paden, play has evolved over the last few years, from an environment focused on safety rules to one embracing imagination and experimentation. Three sheds sit on the blacktop filled with pool noodles, car tires, fuzzy fabric, old keyboards, lawn chairs, industrial cardboard tubes, fake grass, boxes, plastic boards and an array of cushions, among other eclectic items. “We looked at our school and our beliefs in our kids and this is what we came up with,” said Principal Katherine Barr. During a morning recess — which was extended last year to 30 minutes — most students sprinted to grab the stuff from the shed, though several headed for a game of soccer or the play structure, or to an organized Star Wars game with the physical education teacher. [...] she said, fewer kids take time to get a Band-Aid for minor scrapes because they want to keep playing. While not all parents are totally comfortable with the philosophy, the school community worked together to come up with this model, Barr said. “It takes me back to my childhood days,” said Erin Head, the school’s librarian, who helped create the play sheds with a grant from Lowe’s and donations from a tire store and other local businesses. On the day she spoke, a four-footed walking cane was a microphone for two girls, while an old suitcase remained an old suitcase, albeit with a child tucked inside. Inside a parachute-covered fort with a plastic grass floor and lawn-chair cushions to sit on, Hayden Gong, 8, offered up her definition of recess. Playground (home and school) injuries treated in emergency rooms per year. Percent of emergency medical dispatches that go to schools for school-age children. Percent of elementary school children who visit the school nurse per year.

Anxiety affects test scores even among students who excel at math

Anxiety affects test scores even among students who excel at math | Psicología Escolar | Scoop.it
The term math anxiety doesn’t call to mind a person who excels at the subject. But students who perform extremely well on math exams can suffer from such anxiety, which has a surprisingly powerful effect on just how well they do. A study led by researchers at the University of Chicago finds that the better a student does at math, the more strongly his or her performance will be dragged down by anxiety. And that relationship between anxiety and achievement holds not just in the United States, but around the world, according to the authors.
