Pajama Day at School!



Today was pajama day in our class.  The kids loved coming to school in their favorite pj’s. I think I actually enjoyed it more than they did.  Nothing like telling a pregnant women she can wear pj’s all day at work.  I set up sleeping bags and stuffed animals in the reading center.  They looked so cozy reading in their pj’s.

We also read The Napping House.  I love this book because of the vocabulary as well as the sequencing in it.  My kids loved it too.  Once we finished it, we created our own class size napping house.  We made a house and then I gave each student a character from the story.  We looked back through the story and the kids had to retell me the story and the order.  Then they got to put the characters on our napping house.

We also sang the song There Were 10 in The Bed.  If you don’t know it each time you sing it one person rolls out of bed and then you start over again with “there were 9 in the bed…”It’s great for counting backwards and introducing the concept of subtraction. I made ten little kids on Popsicle sticks and put it in the reading center for them to play with.  I heard them singing it all day!

    We just read Fancy Nancy’s Pajama Day book – it would go well with a day like yours. We haven’t read The Napping House, but it sounds interesting.

    This looks looks like so much fun! Emily loves pajamas, and the book/song ten in the bed. What a great project for them to play with, I will have to make something like that for Emily, she would love being able to act out the story/song with puppets :)

    Thank you for linking up to stART!

    Napping House is a great book – and the pajama day sounds really nice. I want one at work too, but it’s so not going to happen in the corporate world.

    My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find
    most of your post’s to be exactly what I’m looking for.
    Does one offer guest writers to write content for yourself?

    I wouldn’t mind creating a post or elaborating on many of the subjects you write in relation to here.
    Again, awesome website!
