I do a lot of things during Lunch Bunch. It is the period of time in my day that is really all mine to work with students and teach them skills I feel are important. Because it’s during lunch, however, I have my fair share of competitions for student time. It’s hard to compete with recess or with a teacher who needs to go over course material, or friends that might be left behind in the lunch room. With even all those challenges, I still get a roomful each week. Even though I do teach a variety of lessons, sometimes I have a stress free zone and we do something “special.” Today was a special day, and was for no “special” reason. I fired up the popcorn maker, filling the hallways with the oh so wonderful buttery smell, and allowed all the passerby’s to drool.
