    rest time

    I have no rest room in the classroom either. After lunch, we come back to the classroom, put away lunch clips and lunch boxes, and then line up again to use the restroom as a whole class. If we are not ready to walk in a line silently down the hall, I wait until we are ready. We wait outside the restroom and then silently walk back to class. Very few of my children want to sleep but they have the option of resting somewhere. They may also color but the idea is - no talking. I provide some interesting coloring sheets which they just love. They color quietly, or rest for about twenty minutes. Another nice option is to put on some soft music. Lights off. A noisy class is not ready to move to the next activity, whatever it is. Stop and wait for them to show you the expected behavior.
