Bring Cooperation to the Playground

Thanks to the donations we received, we have great changes on our playgrounds. The other day I was out playing at recess with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade classes. We were playing wall ball, and we were just about to start the game,. But the ball went flying away. I saw two kids grab the ball at the same time, and one of them drew his arm back, as if to strike the other. With a rapidly beating heart, I ran over, only to see the other student draw HIS arm back for a game of ro-sham-bo. One of the students won, grabbed the ball, and they both went their peaceful ways!

 

Thank you!
