Our class discovered a side effect of blended learning. Sometimes the class is so engaged they work right through recess and no one notices! We were all engaged in various literacy projects. I was traveling from group to group providing guidence and helping when asked. No one thought to look at the clock and apparently no one needed a break because recess passed us by. What is even more amazing is that the students really didn't seem to care. I know... hard to believe, but true. "Don't worry," I told my class. "We'll stop and take a recess break now." No one ran for the door and I heard,"Okay, just a minute." and "Wait...I have to write one more sentence." When did learning become as important as recess? Love blended learning.
