Roller Skating in Kindergarten

I'll bet there's a rule somewhere: No skating in the classroom!

But roller skates were Dash's sharing for today and he really wanted to show the class how he could skate. So we bent the rules to state: No skating in the classroom UNLESS the teacher tells you to.

Dash skated across the room at a good clip.

And what great skills kids learn on skates!
At my school we now have a 'Wheels Wednesday' every week and children are allowed to bring skates, scooters etc to use at school - this is supervised (not over supervised) by the playground duty teacher - and we have recently incorporated into the day a BMX bike track which has proved to be immensely popular.

Alden, that's great! Wheels Wednesdays! Maybe we can implement that idea here in California. I KNOW it would be popular with the kids. C'mon, parent readers, chime in on this.
