Morning Walks & Free Play Options

Many classrooms began the day with morning walks or free play activities. Staff asked students how they felt when starting the day with these options:

  • "It was easier to focus at the start of the day after being outside"
  • "The fresh air made me feel good"
  • "It made me happier"
  • "The walks gave me a bit more energy"
  • "I liked talking to my friends before working"
  • "Drawing helped me be calm"
  • "It helps my brain calm down"
