PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Positive Alternatives to Withholding Recess

In 2011 the Centers for Disease Control published a paper entitled, The Association Between School Based Physical Activity including Physical Education and Academic Performance. The findings speak to the importance of recess in respect to academic performance. “Eight studies looked at the impact of physical activity during recess on academic performance. 59% of the outcomes for recess were positive. “In addition, in all eight studies found one or more positive findings suggesting that recess was associated with improvements in attention, concentration, and/or on-task behavior. “

Given the many documented benefits of recess it seems counter productive to withhold recess for discipline reasons. The child who has difficulty sitting still is most likely a child that needs recess to decompress and burn off energy.

This article focuses on the many positive rewards for appropriate behavior instead of the negative approach of withholding recess.
