Children have long regarded recess as a highlight of the school day. Last week, unstructured play breaks got an endorsement from the American Academy of Pediatrics.
“We all feel so much better after we have moved purposefully and vigorously,” said Carol Kranowitz of Bethesda, who co-authored Growing an In-Sync Child with Joye Newman. “Children will have a better appetite for lunch, be more alert throughout the school day and be infinitely more cheerful if they have frequent recesses.”

Give children time to explore, play, engage in lots of physical activity and do things for themselves, and they will get the basic skills they will need for reading and writing, the Bethesda authors say in their recently published book, Growing an In-Sync Child.
