    • Sounds like a good idea Alexa. Maybe you could also write what would be an ideal amount of time for children to have recess and also even research how different recess times compare in the psychological development of children. Hopefully you will find what you will need!

    • Alexa, it sounds like you are headed in the right direction. I was just wondering if you had specific examples within your findings. You said that “Some of the benefits that I am going to focus on are how children will grow socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically by having longer recess. ” but I was wondering if you had specific examples that support each topic in which recess is beneficial.

    • Minimum wage laws wouldn’t be necessary if this were an employees market and not an employers market. Unfortunately, the federal government very desperately wants to make it an employers market and keep it that way.

    • Dear Alexa,

      I am writing about your post, “Be You,” because it had an interesting sense of humor and I didn’t know a person could write an entire two paragraphs about a silly word like “Bubble.”

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Bubble literally means a sphere of gas trapped inside a thin layer of liquid. Many would say: “why is bubble your favorite word?” and my response to them? ” I think this is relevant because a bubble is now no longer just a bubble, it has the ability to connect to other objects and people.

      Another sentence that I was: “To me, personally, the letter B is an extravagantly interesting letter to pronounce. Saying that, when the word bubble is said, it makes the lips touch to pronounce the B creating a satisfying noise when said out loud. Say bubble three times and don’t tell me you didn’t smile.” This stood out for me because when you say the word “together” your lips do not touch but when you say “apart” your lips do touch and they are completely opposite words.

      Your post reminds me of my childhood. The friend, light feeling of being outside.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because makes me feel like a kid again.
