Any ideas on getting the kids to nap? Some days (lately especially), they are quite noisey during nap time, and it is bothersome to my students who nap religiously.
Anything special that you do to "encourage" nap? My principal thinks we should do away with it, but I believe the DSS states that preschools should have nap times if children are enrolled for a minimum of 6 hours. What are your thoughts?
Here in Argentina, kids have got their nap, I speak on behalf of my little daughter (5 y) , she likes sleeping and resting at school/ kinder, actually.
She has told me her teacher uses a "motivation" system of different colour of stars: if the kid sleeps... he will get a golden star (sticker)
BUT if the kid does not sleep... he will get a light blue star. Of course, the valuable ones are the GOLDEN STARS, the more you have... the better.
My daughter says when somebody is not tired at all, he /she may read a story, but must remein quiet on the correct place of their nap
Lots of love
