Every morning when we start our day, we make a rectangle (because our carpet doesn’t really allow us to make a circle–LOL), and talk about how we’re feeling. We talk about the zone of regulation we’re in (usually we’re green and blue!), and often there is a question that we all answer. Very early on, I used a question I stole from my 7th grader (thanks, Riley!)–what is your favorite breakfast food?
Not surprisingly, many kiddos around the circle mentioned pancakes. And very specifically, Luke said chocolate chip pancakes. :). It seemed like for the next few days, everything we read and everywhere we looked, we were seeing references of pancakes. This includes our cafeteria, where the “B” choice every Wednesday is pancakes for lunch. :). So….we decided that it would only make sense to have our very own pancake party!
The date was set, and as we awaited the day, we found as many pancake-inspired books to read to get us ready (and make us hungry!!). Check out what we found!
Then, on Friday, we were ready for our special pancake breakfast together! :). And I’d say, it was even better than we’ve even hoped!
This made our third snack-related day already (we’ve been together for 22 days), and we’re already planning our next! There really is something to be said about how special it is to share a meal together (stay tuned to see what it will be!). I have heard from many first graders that this was our best day yet! :).
