I teach at a pretty small international school and when the weather is wet (often the case in Zurich) the students stay inside for recess. This translates to no break for the teachers and some very noisy kids.
What does your school do when it’s too wet and cold to go outside to play?
Here are some pictures of what my kids did today to keep themselves entertained during wet play.
|Playing Crazy Eights with Vowel Sounds|
|Another Game of Crazy Eights|
|An Old Fashioned Game of Old Maid|
|And one of my favorites...UNO!|
As you can see they entertain themselves quite well. Some children will even practice their times table races or finish some work that they might need to complete. All in all, it’s like a big slumber party but during the day of course.
I’d love to know what you do in your school? Do you have a gymnasium where students can go when the weather is bad?
Tell me all about it!
