Point/Counterpoint: Longer Recess

By Nancy Wible 

Tweet! Many students think the recess whistles are blowing too soon. There have been many petitions for longer or multiple recesses. Multiple recesses would be beneficial because you get to see more of your friends from different classes. Also, we don’t get much time to get exercise. Some students don’t play sports or get physical exercise at home. When we get short recess, these students don’t get an hour exercise a day which is what you are expected to get. Usually the only time these students will get enough exercise is when they have gym. Also, when you are in 2nd grade you have two recesses, so it is usually a huge jump when you get to 3rd grade and only have one. We also got new recess equipment this year which was a lot of money so what’s the point of it if we only use it for twenty-five minutes. The new playground is so fun, and a lot of students would agree that they would like more time on it. Another reason that we should have more recess is that students will pay more attention to class if they have energy and they would be relaxed. 

Reece Brown in forth grade Mrs. Crowe’s said, “We need more recess because we are awesome!” 

Maddie Flynn in fourth grade Mrs. Becker’s class said “I would want an extra 10 minutes for our second recess.”
