The students have worked very hard to collaborate on the slumber party details. They have planned the entire evening, down to the whole class activities, game center and movie. They have even agreed to a quiet time and bed time.
My husband, Mark, will be joining me and I am excited to have the help. He is great with kids and thrilled to put faces to all the stories. He certainly has as much energy as the kids so I am counting on him to meet the kids on their level and let me kick back!
Here is the schedule (roughly):
Friday - Regular school day (PJ's are optional)
3:35 - 4:30 - Whole class learns and plays Hoi ball (a 5th grade game)
4:30 - 5:30 - Games (center style where kids rotate)
5:30 - 6:30 - Whole class challenge (Islandwood style challenge posed by Ms. Hunter)
6:30 - 7:00 - Dinner (Pack own dinner - surprisingly this option was selected over ordering pizza)
7:00 - 8:00 - Choice time -(Video games, scary stories, jokes, riddles, etc.)
8:00 - 9:30 - Movie (Honey I Shrunk the Kids) and snack (popcorn with bacon salt provided by Ms. Hunter)
9:30 - 10:00 - Prep for bed (brush teeth and set up bedding - they voted to have separate sides of the room for boys and girls)
10:00 pm- Quiet alone time (books,music, stuffies, etc.) and sleep
Sat. - 8:00am- 10:00 - Breakfast will be put out and students can help themselves when they wake up. The class agreed that it is quiet time until 8:00am. The rest of the morning will be cleaning up and an activity outside (recess style). Please be on time to pick up your student as I have an charity event to go to in the afternoon.
If you need to make special arrangements for pick up or drop off, please let me know. The classroom phone number is (206) 252-5207 or email. I will be sending an email later in the week with my cell phone. The doors will be locked and security will know that we are staying the night in the school.
