Want More Recess? Cut and Paste This Letter!

Great grandma Joanne Ward of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, read Let Grow President Lenore Skenazy’s column about the fastest, cheapest child therapy — FREE PLAY. Then she emailed us this worksheet filled out by her pride and joy, Emma.

Emma is a second grader making the case for a longer recess. In case you have a hard time reading it, Emma’s talking points include:

“Less insie energy” = less antsy energy.

“Lesss craze” = less crazy.

“Betr focus” = I think you can figure it out! Concentrate!

Share this with your school and friends! And if you’d like your school to start a Let Grow Play Club — staying open for free play before or after school — here’s our free implementation guide!
