Teaching Frog Ted new things - 2
Hi Everyone, it's me, Frog!
My new little friend Frog Ted is learning about how to be a GOOD FRIEND and how to help children write good stories. I am telling him everything I know!
Obi-Sven has been teaching him as well. Obi-Sven is VERY clever and wise and knows all kinds of things - even SECRET things, like looking for pichards in the nooks and grannys, er.... I mean crannies. (hehe)
But children, did you know that having a rest sometimes is just as important as being busy?
If you are tired (and maybe grumpy!) then it is hard for your brain to work properly, and for you to remember new things.
Sometimes when you are very tired, all you want to do is lie down and have a snooze, and you don't want to think about what you have to do next.
So you can't learn all your new sums and writing if you are yawning your head off.
What if you yawned so much your head really DID fall off???? (That might make quite a good story, actually - go and put it in your rough book for later!)
So, because we don't want Frog Ted to get into BAD HABITS like going to bed too late and getting too tired to think properly, Obi-Sven is showing him how to get to sleep really quickly and have a good night's sleep.
To get to sleep quickly at bedtimes, it's good to do the same thing every night.
That way, your brain gets to know it's going to be time to go to sleep, so it helps you to get your ZZZZZ's more easily.
Having a bedtime story is a GREAT.
Get tucked in!
Thanks, Obi-Sven, wake up, you can go back to your desk now!
Love, Frog X
