When I first started teaching, I taught First Grade in a small Catholic school that didn't have a playlot.
So, for recess we would all pile into the parking lot and mill around.
One day I decided that the kids needed something MORE.
That's the day Run/Scream was invented.
I told the kids to take a deep breath, then run and scream as much as they could.
The last one standing was the winner.
It wore them out and they had a blast.
So, about a year ago I went back to visit those same kids who were now in 8th grade.
One of them said to me, "I get run/scream now. You just wanted us to be quiet inside!"
