A new study examines the potential link between time spent at recess and reading achievement.

In "Recess and Reading Achievement of Early Childhood Students in Public Schools," researchers describe how much time kindergartners in the U. S. spend in recess and in reading class, and whether that is connected to students' scores on a reading assessment. Their study found a possible connection between the amount of time students spent at recess and reading achievement. According to the April 2012 study- Daily recess, once or three or more times, for a total of 45 minutes or longer; and daily recess, twice, for a total of 31-45 minutes appeared to produce the highest reading scores for students.
