PLAY!

The English Language Learners (ELL) classes at MC2’s Lake City After School Program has a recess component built into each day.  As one might guess, there are a wide range of experiential moments that happen on any given day.  Getting ice for scrapes, consoling students on negative interactions, conversations around a whole host of topics, as examples.  But the most important goal for all is to have fun and PLAY!  As one can see from the different pictures, it is an important part of learning, both in class and out.
