I like the idea of just writing the names on the board and seeing who makes it all the way thru rest time. So simple! I'm going to give that a try.

Also, I'm wondering how 20 minutes can be much of a rest time. We have an hour. That give even the wiggle worms enough time to settle down. And once they do, they fall asleep. They really ARE tired after a full morning. I usually have to wake them up.

I don't often play a story, but I do play a variety of soft music. And I do mean variety! One class had a particularly interesting response to a Beatles cd. I guess it sounded so foriegn to them, they either gently moved to the music, or just got real still and listened. They were so interested in hearing the music that nobody fooled around! When rest was over, I asked them what they thought of that days music and they said "fun!". good way to describe it I thought. B.B. King and other blues music also tames the savage beast.
