Team Time this week: Interupting Chicken #fullermeadow #ttuchat #kidsdeserveit

Our third story this month about Self-Control is this hysterical book called Interrupting Chicken.  In this story, it’s time for the little red chicken’s bedtime story —and a reminder from Papa to try not to interrupt. But the chicken can’t help herself! Whether the tale is HANSEL AND GRETEL or LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD or even CHICKEN LITTLE, she jumps into the story to save its hapless characters from doing some dangerous or silly thing. Now it’s the little red chicken’s turn to tell a story, and she puts her Papa to sleep with her story!  The students loved this book!

Our conversation about this book was interesting.  We asked if the chicken was in a classroom, how would the interrupting make the teacher feel?  How would it make the other students feel?  Most students understood how calling out and blurting out rather than raising their hands might have an impact on their students.

Team Time Last Week: Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns Too Much of a Good Thing is Bad #kidsdeserveit #fullermeadow #ttuchat

Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns Too Much --of a Good Thing is Bad: A Story About Moderation

Last week’s team time, we continued our conversation about self-control.  We read this book about Howard, who deals with issues of overdoing and overeating. He learns that through discipline and moderation, he can have a sense of personal power.   We discussed things that might be an example of a good thing that if we have too much of it, can be bad.  Of course, the topic of screentime was brought up.  I was so happy to hear that so many of you have put parameters on screentime with your children!  They were happy to report to me about your rules at home.

Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns Too Much --of a Good Thing is Bad: A Story About Moderation

We continued our conversation about self-control last week at Team Time.  We read this cute book about Howard, who deals with issues of overdoing and overeating. He learns that through discipline and moderation, he can have a sense of personal power.  We had a great conversation as well about things that we really like that if we use too much, can turn into a bad thing, for example:  candy and other sweets, electronics and video games and tv.  The students responded appropriately and many of them told me that their parents have strict rules about electronics and screen time.  I think that is great!
