Quiet Time

Here they are working on some bird ID.
We used to have "Quiet/Nap" Time after the noon recess, but it didn't ever seem to work so well.  They were busy bodies or some would get super tired and not be able to work afterwards.  One day a couple of years ago, a boy said, "Why don't we just have bird time instead of nap time?"  I thought that was a great idea!  Now after the noon recess, they grab their cup of water and we sit around the Promethean Board and have a short bird lesson instead.  This has been a good compromise and its educational too!
