The boys like to play marbles. My brother was a grade behind me, and he had a beautiful collection of big colorful marbles.
We moved midyear from that school, and I hated the class that I ended up for the last part of fourth grade, yet that is the school I finished at. There were some fun recesses there, too. Still had tether ball, hopscotch and monkey bars, but it was also the beginning of puberty and boys with cooties!
Recess activities were usually a way to get out pent up energy so to better focus in the classroom. I really should start doing that in my daily work!
Challenge anyone to a game of tetherball?
