as an intro to 'don't let the pigeon stay up late' my amazing co-teacher asked the children to tell us their 'bed time routines'- you know, not the ones their parents put in place but what they do to avoid going to bed, much like the pigeon.
it was fascinating to hear their schemes, but more importantly, to hear about the role their parents played in all this (or didn't play). it was a fascinating little glimpse into their lives and i don't think i'll ever read 'don't let the pigeon stay up late' without asking about their own sleep-withholding-strategies. all good information to know going into parent conferences...
