We’re getting our Social Emotional Time on with GT Recess! Zeke is introducing the 4th graders to a io game called Slither. The kids were asked to share a game we could play as a class and this was Zeke’s game choice.

Edit: Listening to these kids laugh is fabulous! We aren’t getting enough of that lately.
