As we collectively adjust to this new reality that, we appreciate the support that Russell Byers is providing to students within the community. Playworks would like to provide an additional free resource that you may share with students and families to promote continued physical activity and social-emotional learning at home.
We are now, more than ever, committed to responding to the need for continued healthy activities at home through a newly developed virtual recess resource which will be delivered by a virtual Playworks Coach on a daily basis.
At no additional cost to your school to share the below virtual recess times and Playworks website with your school community. This collaborative effort would allow us to jointly ensure that children continue to experience the power of play but also take part in physical activity during this period of unexpected out of school time.
Playworks virtual recess is held Monday through Friday at 12 p.m., 2 p.m., and 4 p.m. streaming on Facebook Live. More information can also be found at playworks.org/playathome.
I have attached a couple videos of myself facilitating games/activities to serve as a preview; you can expect something similar coming the Playworks Facebook live Play at Home sessions.
Thank you so much for being a partner in play and look forward to what we can do for our community.
Peace, love, play,
PS. As a valuable school partner, we also suggest sharing our online Game Library allowing your school community access to explore hundreds of games by group size, available space and equipment, appropriate ages, and developmental skills.
