An Indoor Outdoor-RecessĀ 

Mistakes were made today… We decided to let the students play in the gym for recess because it rained all morning and we assumed that at least one student from every class would try to swim in the bid puddle on the blacktop. Letting them run around in the gym was trouble though. 

Basically, it was like taking a jar of bees and shaking it. We stuffed the entire fourth grade into half of the gym and gave them dodgeballs… They just beat the crap out of each other for 30 minutes and then came up to the other teacher and I and complained about how everyone was playing unfairly… 

There is not a lot I can do about an uneven game of dodgeball, hon. It kind of just is what it is.
