Free Virtual School Program
Never before has our world faced a challenge as extraordinary as the coronavirus pandemic. Everyone is affected. Everyone is unsure and afraid. Schools have changed. Educators are asked to do more. Kids are being pulled in many directions. We all desperately need some semblance of normalcy. We all need to find positive in what seems to be an incredibly difficult time in our lives. Children and adults alike need joy and play now, more than ever. And the folks here at Recess Guardians want to help.
Recess Guardians and active8 are very excited to launch a brand new program for both schools and at home. We have taken our in-school, leadership program and put it online so that you can do it at your own pace. The program includes:
5 short, video modules that will empower your youth through games and activities at both school and at home;
Teacher-to-teacher communication and discussion boards;
Resources for teachers and parents/guardians to engage their youth in different ways;
Ongoing challenges every Monday throughout the school year.
Each teacher will be asked to show the video modules to their class, and engage them in some conversation regarding the subject matter afterwards. The videos are very short, and will always end with a game that has to do with that particular topic. We have also included some pieces to send home to parents/guardians to keep them informed of what their children are learning, and how they can engage them at home as well.
This virtual program is meant to develop leadership skills and confidence in youth through play and physical activity, while maintaining social distancing. It is more important than ever to get youth to socialize, have fun and play together. By signing up, you will get to interact with other like-minded individuals, and learn not only from the Recess Guardians instructors, but from each other as well. We want to develop a community that can support one another and build each other up.
Check out the Recess Guardians Learning Management Systems below to take full advantage of our new program.
