What is your favorite recess game? If you play this game, what's your favorite part?
Remember, if you want to be next week's Spotlight Blogger, just write a post (or have your parents type it as you speak). You can email your post to me or hand me your hand written post.
At recess, I play a game with my friends where we are creative. There are 5 bosses in charge. I am the front boss and my job is to make sure everyone is ok and is doing the right thing. The other bosses are Logan and Maya. Their job is to make sure no one is mean. Marissa is also a boss and her job is to make sure everyone works properly. Hannah is a boss too and she walks around to make sure everyone is ok and no one is hurt. The last boss is Ryan, her job is to make sure everyone is quiet when we have our meetings. Some people give me notes and tell me I am the best boss.
There is a lab where we live and work and do our jobs. In the lab, we do fun activities and games. When there are beeps we know that someone is trying to get in the lab. When we hear beeps we go to the grass so everyone is safe. But I stay in the lab and go upstairs right away so the 5 bosses can keep track of what is going on and make sure everyone is safe. The bosses on the grass count everyone to make sure everyone is there and is OK. I communicate with hand motions to the other bosses since I am in the lab and the other bosses are on the grass keeping everyone safe.
Everyday, except Wednesday, I bring in keys. I made these keys at home out of laminated paper. I wrote each players name on a key. If someone walks in the lab and they don't have a key the beep goes on. But if someone comes in and they have a key we know we are safe because the beeps won't go on. If people do a really good job they get stickers on their key. When they earn 10 stickers they get to go in the magic prize bag. Everyday We have meetings and the 5 bosses get to stand in front. Everyone else sits down on the benches. If you have enough stickers and you don't want a prize, like Julia b for example, she wanted to have a wedding so she traded 20 stickers off her key and she had her wedding.
On Wednesday, since there are no keys, I turn on a censor to detect intruders.
One thing we do in the lab is set up jobs. One job is putting sticks and pine cones on the shelves and they are used as lasers. Instead of the kids using sticks and leaves and pine cones they use soda cans that people drank out of and they put bags that people ate food out of on the shelves. Every time we have meetings I tell them not to put trash on the shelves. If you play the game you will know that is why I bring pictures of sticks, pine cones and leaves so you can remember.
Everyday when we have our meetings I make sure there is enough room for people to walk up and down the stairs. We call it a pathway.
The speaker is what I speak through when I need someone or if I need to communicate to the group.When I am going to give someone feedback I try to give everyone feedback so no one feels upset and left out. Also, I will pick 3 people that I want to compliment and I call them upstairs on the speaker. Jessica is a very important person in the game because she makes food for us to eat.
If someone comes up and says, "I quit!" We will vote to keep playing the game or to stop playing the game. If we vote to stop, I am sad. I always say if you have to quit then do it but if you don't have to please don't. The people that play the game are very nice people. I wish they would play every day but sometimes they take breaks. I am very sad when they don't come back but I know that they will come back the next day.
And that is how we play the game at recess.
