Community Playtime — It's Good for Everyone

 We are using the Community play to bring our community of schools together with common goals, shared resources and a whole lot of student planning energy. We are so excited about the potential for this Play, we are rating it a four. We will likely upgrade to a 5 after the event :)

In-Class Physical Activity Breaks

 The great thing about this play is that it can be done every day by every student. Giving teachers the flexibility to include the activity break at a time during the school day that works best for them and their students increases its success.
