S/O my lunch time question.

Since some answered about recess.. How long do your kids get for recess if they have it, and how many per day?

My boys get 20 minutes for recess twice a day.

  • The walk from the kindergarten room to the lunch room and back to the playground is alot for them already, then they have 30 minutes after lunch

  • 30 minutes about an hour after lunch for recess but if they finish their lunch in 20 minutes (they get 30) they can spend the last 10 minutes on the playground.

  • Up to grade 6 in my town it's 25 minutes once a day (either before or after lunch, depending on the grade)

  • For dd last year in gr. 1, they started school at 8:50. They had a 10 min snack time in the classroom at 10:00, then outside time at 11:20-12:10 then they come inside to eat from 12:10-12:30. Then they also have a 15 min recess at 1:30. Schools out at 3.

  • let me think for a minute... snack: 30 min; lunch: 30 min; afternoon break: 20 min; and then of course they have 45 min of PE every day. That is the schedule for 1st - 5th grade, I'm not sure after that.
