Reflection: Joy Good Night Dino! - Section 3: Assessment


Letting children wear their pajamas to school is just plain fun!  They love the casualness of the day.  They love to bring a bit of home to their school day and to share with friends.  In March, during Reading Month, our school has an Elementary school-wide day called Pajamarama and it is usually the kick-off activity for Reading Month.  The children gather in the cafeteria and gym, lie down on the floor and read silently for thirty minutes.  It is tricky to keep the kindergarten children quietly reading the whole time, so I will often read quietly to keep the group under control.
