Vesna Horvatovikj

In the personal development of the students, it is of utmost significance that their correct direction towards recreation and sports, and the school in this sense, through the timely, additional and other types of extracurricular activities should provide them with regular physical activity. The free time is most valuable time for the modern individual, therefore, the parents wanting their children to have “usefully spent” free time, enroll them in various types of playgrounds, play houses, sports schools, acting and dancing schools, without checking the vocational competencies of the people who run the above mentioned activities. It is very common for the children to be left to non-professionals who do not work at improving of development of their skills. Therefore, when programming the curriculum for elementary education, the needs for playing, entertainment and rest of the students should be taken into account. The focus on our observation here are the extracurricular activities, and within that framework, especially those activities that through sports and recreation influence on the acquiring healthy living habits of students. Within this framework, we kept our attention of: school sports clubs, school excursions, school sports competitions as well as the socially useful work of students. Regarding that the researches show decline in the time spent in various physical activates, especially with the beginning of adolescence, it is important to mention the serious approach that the elementary schools should have in realization of these extracurricular activities.
