To those who do rest time...

Clip to ScrapBook #1

This is my first year teaching full day kindergarten. We are having a 20 minute rest time after a read aloud after lunch. While they are very tired throughout the afternoon, our rest time is not working out as well as I would like. I read aloud a book, we get a drink, we get out our rest-time blankets or towels, we find a spot, and we're supposed to rest as we listen to soft music. And they do rest....sort of. But mostly they wiggle and a couple are just naughty. We have only had 2 days of school so far, but that was the first thing they wanted to know when they came to school this morning, so I know it is on their minds.

The parents are very supportive of having rest time. The kids are certainly exhausted, partly because we have no air conditioning and we're in the middle of a heat wave.

I'm just looking for any tips or tricks or is it normal for it to be hard and will it get better?
