This week at recess, my goal is to do a different activity every day while using different parts of my body.

I use my arms when I do the monkey bars.
Puedo usar mis brazos cuando hago las barras.

On Tuesday, my goal is to play soccer.

On Wednesday, my goal is to go for a run.

I bend my knees when I run.
Doblo mis rodillas cuando corro.

On Thursday, my goal is to play hand-clapping games with my friends.
