Exercise Your Mind, Exercise Your Body!

There was a lot of excitement this week in the library when I announced that Monday is going to be the first day of No Time for TV Week!  Many of the students look forward to doing special activities with their families, and of course they don't mind earning special prizes, too!

The third graders in the picture above are showing off some of the great prizes they could earn next week.  (All of these students participated in the program last year and didn't have any screen time for all seven days in a row - great job you guys!!!)

All of the details about how the program works can be found by clicking on the links below.  Each student received a copy of this at school but you are welcome to print another copy if you need it:

Contract page 2

If you'd like some ideas for activities you can do, please click on one of the links below to access a "No Time for TV" BINGO board you can print out.  (There are three different versions.)  I also recommend visiting the public library and heading for the non-fiction section. There you'll find books packed with things to do: crafts, drawing, cooking, science experiments, magic tricks, and secret spy codes just to name a few!
