Get Your Wiggles Out

Holland Elementary preschooler Reagan Ellis swings during recess at the school on Wednesday. Reagan's favorite recess activity is to twist herself up on the swing, and then let go and enjoy the ride. "I think play is so important, especially at the preschool age. It helps get their wiggles out, but also allows them time to socialize," Reagan's teacher, Emma Hurst said. "Imaginative play is really important to allow them to have a chance to think outside the box, and be whoever they want to be."
