First Grade teachers/anyone with answers: I have noticed this year that first grade is a huge jump from kindergarten. In K they get lots of free play time plus recess. In first grade we just have a 25 minute recess. Does anyone else out their give their first graders extra time to play/free time? There is so much to get done in a day but I feel like its such a huge change for them to go from that much play time to hardly any at all. Sometimes I feel bad that theres so much work even though I try to make things fun/hands on opposed to worksheets/tests. Thanks!
