Teaching Tip: Transition from recess or PE

Some students become overly excited and even hyperactive following recess or PE. Follow the physical activity with a brief quiet time (five to ten minutes) in which the students listen to calming music. You can also do this after a test or a long period of seat work. Doing this can also have the positive by-product of developing your students' appreciation for music.
