Story Snacktime!

  You asked... I listened!

Last night at one of the curriculum night sessions, we discussed the possibility of eating our snacks inside before we go out for recess. Many students spend the whole recess time eating their snacks and this will become more difficult when it is winter. Also, once they have eaten their snacks, they often toss their snack container onto the ground, and forget where :)

Today we started "Story Snacktime" . 10-15 minutes before morning recess begins, we will meet on the carpet and eat our snacks while listening to a story. This also engages those students who don't bring snacks. On the days that we have Music and Library right before recess (Day 2 and Day 4 in our cycle), I will read a story right after recess.

Hopefully there will be a minimum of spills on our carpet! We have a "dustbuster" just in case....

Today we read
Don't let the Pigeon Stay Up Late by Mo Willems.
